Joe Bucolo


You’re right if you observed how Joseph Bucolo portrays historical images within his artwork. The intent of Joe’s paintings isn’t to convey a particular event or scene in history, as much as an emotion.

You’ll notice a gesture, an ascetic with allegorical implications beyond its historical context. When viewed in such a way, the historical past becomes a personal past, a place in which every memorialized  inhabitant, even one’s remembered self  becomes mythologized.
