Joseph Fucigna
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: Through experimentation, play and innovation I create sculptures and paintings that are known for their power to transform materials, inventiveness and odd but suggestive subject matter. I am a multi-media artist whose work is rooted in process, play and the innate qualities of the materials used. The work is not so much about the narrative as it is about the experience of the process, the materials used and how they express themselves. The inspiration for my sculptures is rooted in the common industrial materials I use. The materials are familiar, inexpensive and can be purchased at your local hardware store. There are no mysteries, tricks or complicated techniques used in the construction. The transparency of the plastic fencing sculptures shows everything. The work has nothing to hide. Simple metal frames give support, cable ties are used to make connections and the inherent qualities of the materials are not hidden. The paintings are an extension of the ideas and imagery used in the sculptures. The paintings are used as studies and inspirations for my three-dimensional works or exist as stand-alone artworks. As a sculptor, the enjoyment of drawing and painting comes from the immediacy of the process. Compared to the tedious and time-consuming requirements of sculpture, painting allows me to move through ideas quickly. The imagery for my sculptures and paintings comes from an intuitive place that is inspired by play, accidents, and the natural tendencies of the media and materials. They eventually evolve into odd, organic abstractions that are either formal studies using inventive shapes and compositions or thematic paintings that float around ideas of water, air, landscapes and the figure.
