About

"Epoch" by Joan Giordano International newspapers, corrugated cardboard, wallpaper, texts, paint, and encaustic Museum shown and collected artist Joan Giordano is known for her unique hand made paper sculpture and wall relief sculpture and Japanese influenced wall scrolls. Mixed Media Collage, Wall Relief Sculpture, Information, Pop Art, Culture, International Media, News, Press, Large-Size, Modern, Contemporary, Abstract Review of "Epoch" in Sculpture Magazine: “Although her sculptures are filled with meaningful textural content, they are also extremely beautiful and expertly made works. They cover the gallery walls, gaining power in their culmination by curving rhythmically in Giordano’s inimitably grand style that can only come through the confidence gained through many years of practice. Giordano reaches back in time to Ancient Egypt to find encaustic and to China for papermaking mixing them with metal, newspaper and other modern mediums. In "Epoch", Giordano uses lithographs of New York Times newspapers rolled with real written international newspapers constituting vertical city-like forms. 'The Digital Fortress, A Techo Thriller' by Dan Brown, comes to mind in this analogy to the 21st century epoch known for its technological connectivity. Just as this book explores electronic government surveillance, Giordano exposes its potential injustices. Since Giordano’s works are unbridled by convention in their use of materials, her message comes through forcefully, embedded into multilayered palimpsests of form and content, history and contemporaneity." - THALIA VRACHOPOULOS, ART HISTORIAN, CURATOR
