Carlo Sampietro
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick

ARTIST STATEMENT: I am a mixed media artist working to heighten public awareness by visually demonstrating cultural issues. My process begins with the act of observation— assessing the complexity of the culturally rooted traditions and social issues that inform and shape people’s lives. I study landscape evolution, human preconceptions, use of natural resources, similarities and differences between societies, cultures, and cities. I take this information and translate my findings into multimedia and found-object installation art. Repurposing these found materials allows me to explain complex social issues to the public from a new angle. I choose my medium according to what best speaks to the audience I wish to reach with a particular work. My work examines the relationships between objects, their intended use and their potential. For me these relationships are a metaphor for the human condition.
