Joe Girandola

Cincinnati, OH, United States

The works of Joe Girandola attract our attention to minute details often overlooked in the corrupt rush of modern society. Though classically trained as a stone carver in Italy, Girandola has veered away from the media concentrating on three-dimensional drawings and paintings using a variety of materials. One medium of choice is Duct Tape. Invented originally to weatherproof military ammunition boxes, the tape’s color was characteristically Army green. With the rise and abundant use of Central Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) units, the matte gray color and universal name of Duct Tape was introduced. Another medium of choice for Girandola is cast-away milk crates. Creating site specific installations with the crates, Girandola connects the piece to the history of the site, while questioning issues that arise from societal expansion and trade route conflicts. Joe Girandola is the Director of the MFA Program at DAAP at the University of Cincinnati.
