The Small Gallery Presents: Joseph Miceli: Spill
b. 1960, New York; lives and works in the Philadelphia area
Joseph's imagery inhabits an elusive periphery heightened by the alluring interplay of his reservoir of narrative elements. Although his symbolic temperament and constructs appear familiar, the undertones originate in the residue of lingering memories and current societal realities. Visually evocative, he creates restrained schemes to achieve illuminated and reverent spaces which invoke devout rumination.
Originally trained as a printmaker, Joseph’s paintings on paper have adapted the process of printed inks to a more fluid approach utilizing templates and reductive methods to achieve comparable surfaces. He received an M.F.A. in printmaking from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, and a B.S. with a minor in printmaking from Nazareth College of Rochester, NY. Joseph was the recipient of a Tyler Galleries Assistantship from Temple University and the former owner of a fine art gallery in the Philadelphia area for almost 20 years. His work resides in numerous private collections across the country.
Threshold, ink on paper, 38x58, 2021.
Join us for a closing reception to meet the artist. Date TBA.
