Joe is the founder and director of Galerie Cerulean. The Galerie grew out of Abstract Art Online, the website he founded in 1999 which began as an online art journal. Joe’s art has been featured in several group and solo shows primarily in New York City since the mid 1980s. Additionally he has curated group shows, moderated artist panels and written a number of catalog introductions for other artists’ shows.
Joe’s paintings combine traditional methods of painting – brush and palette knives – with mono-printing and stenciling techniques with a focus on creating transparencies of color and surface. All of this grew from his work with collage. His imagery references are wide range from nature to New York street graffiti.
