Artist Talk: In A Dark Wood, Wandering
December 4, 2019 ESTFree
Join artist Joseph Saccio for an exclusive walk through of his current solo exhibition: “In a Dark Wood, Wandering,” at the Housatonic Museum of Art. During this free event, Saccio will share his artistic process as well as his interests in mythology, nature and the journey through bereavement.
Over the course of 30 years, Saccio has created large-scale sculptures that draw on classical mythology and religious narrative to create primal, emotional and fantastical works of art that explore loss, grief and resilience.
Using wood, natural materials and found objects, the ambitious career survey exhibition reflects this New Haven-based artist’s feelings about loss and rebirth. While the artwork is frequently dark and pensive, the mood is often lightened by humor through the placement of brightly colored materials.
Saccio’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibits throughout Connecticut, including Mercy Gallery, Silvermine Art Center, Parachute Factory, Erector Square Gallery, Choate Mellon Art Center, Jon Slade Ely House, Bruce S. Kershner Gallery and Gallery of the Institute Library.
This exhibition will be on view through Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019.
