Anthony Palocci Jr.’s paintings are primarily object-based. The true appeal is their history as product, their failure to satisfy, and their eminent passing. Working mainly with oil on canvas or gouache on paper, the artist brings a measured minimalism to his straightforward renditions of basic household appliances and audio/video systems. Their boxy and perforated grid designs become a metaphor for building design and the use of scale enhances the sensation of architecture.
Palocci has shown his work in solo and group shows across the country. His work was included in the 2013 deCordova Biennial, curated by Lexi Lee Sullivan, at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts. His solo shows include at et al Projects, Brooklyn, NY, Lot F Gallery, Boston, MA and the 2016 Seattle Art Fair with SEASON. His group exhibitions include Platform Gallery, Seattle, WA, Montserrat Gallery, Beverly, MA, and Hallway Gallery, Boston, MA, among others.
