San Francisco-based painter Joey Piziali pushes the visual information to the exterior, forming vacuous white voids. Glowing rather than empty, his Edge works originally developed from testing the spray of airbrush while working on other paintings. The arbitrary marks became formal exercises that also act as a convincing light source. Their meditative nature reflects the flow of the artist in studio, a memento of the conditions under which such happy accidents occur.
Piziali’ recent solo exhibitions have been at Guerrero Gallery, San Francisco, Smith Andersen Gallery, Paolo Alto and Collectors Contemporary in Singapore. Recent group exhibitions include at the Bronx River Arts Center, Baer Ridgway Exhibitions, SF, Institute of Contemporary Art, San Jose and Scion Installation Space in Los Angeles. Piziali is an Artadia Award finalist and an SFAI Fellow.
