Memory and Metamorphosis

Joe Saccio
September 25 – November 4, 2011

“Memory and Metamorphosis,” an exhibit of sculptural works in a variety of sizes and materials by Joseph Saccio, expresses the artist’s personal feelings associated with myth and ritual, loss and rebirth. “I’m interested in the idea of great power joined to fragility and vulnerability, a very human, and indeed, mythic combination,” says Saccio. “This is reflected in the choice of weighty, large materials literally joined with, or in assocation with, fragile materials such as paper or fiber bindings especially noted at the physical connections among parts of my sculptures.” The dark somber pieces are expressive of loss and rebirth, and for the artist, associated with myth and ancient ritual, leading the viewer through the changing process, producing forms which are abstract but resemble a living organism.
