About Joseph Piccillo
Joseph Piccillo’s signature graphite and charcoal drawings and paintings feature horses in motion. These dynamic works are intricate studies of the animal’s anatomy and musculature; each powerful horse seems to burst through the two-dimensional plane of the canvas. Piccillo is a skilled draftsman, and his nuanced use of shadow and scale highlight this ability. The artist also makes figurative works depicting dancers and divers.
American, b. 1941, Buffalo, New York
