'Don't Talk to Me about Sin when My Belly Is So Full'

Oil on Carved Wooden Cabinet with Found Objects

2003

This cabinet was located during a trash dive, origins unknown. The addition of bright colors, serpents, bugs and rats and the adhesion of trinkets combined with a good old medieval-style admoniition from beyond the grave seemed to placate the dissatisfied-looking skeleton carvings that adorned the original drab brown surface.

Available for purchase.

Mixed Media

Combining traditional mediums, found objects and unconventional materials, Joe plays, explores, and stretches his relationship to his work. Each object has been synthesized in concept and execution from the ordinary and the evocative into an artifact with a life all its own.
