Joseph Gerard Sabatino “Daily Rot”
Friday, November 7 –
Friday, December 12, 2014

Daily Rot uncovers both public and private realities as a way to perceive and familiarize the challenges of everyday life. Impressions that are typically blinded as an adult may at times be apparent through the innocent eyes and unadorned mind of a child. Institutional products, direct language and industrial components are all subjects presented to the viewer, but poses as questions rather than answers.

Rustic steel plates with hand carved text from the series titled, Conversations, share space with an aged canvas, decrepit stretcher bars and hand made oxidized steel hardware in; The Looking Glass Self. Plumbing fixtures that are normally tucked away in crawl spaces or basements are now front and center. Lighthearted and noteworthy items are encased and mixed with industrial cement, then confined within intestinal sheaths. Visible yet partially concealed, the fleshy casings and substances pour from the spouts of brass plumbing hardware and shut-off valves that are fixed to the wall. A hand operated meat grinder was used as tool to pack, penetrate and reveal the encased shapes through the sheer skins, instead as a device made to support day-day-day provisions.

Joseph Gerard Sabatino began his journey as a photographer, but soon expanded into different materials and methods. After receiving his education from Montclair State University and Lorenzo di Medici Institute in Florence, Italy, Sabatino went on to exhibit in a variety of New York and New Jersey venues. Solo exhibitions include the AC Institute,, Paterson Museum and The Dryfoos Gallery at Kean University. He has exhibited in Northern Kentucky University’s Underground Railroad exhibition and participated in Bittersweet: The Chocolate Show at Rutgers University. Sabatino was also selected to participate in three consecutive New Jersey Arts Annuals. Internationally, Sabatino has featured work in Florence, Italy as well as in Graz, Austria. The artist was a recipient of Aljira’s Emerge Artist Fellowship Program and was one of ten artists selected nationally for the William and Dorothy Yeck Award for Miami University’s “National Young Sculptors Competition.” His work has been reviewed or featured in The New York Times, NY ArtBeat, ArtVoices Magazine, The Herald News,The Star-Ledger, The Record and The Jersey City Reporter. This summer, Sabatino will install a public work at The Gateway Center II Causeway.
