Joe Girandola

Girandola's work focuses on relegated technologies and materials as he investigates the destructiveness of a society in the most troubling of times. Duct tape bandages surround Styrofoam carvings representing a “quick fix” society. Twisting castaway eyeglasses into makeshift weapons, Girandola attempts to focus an American societies fascination with violence. Girandola received his BA in Studio Art from Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA in 1992 and his MFA in Sculpture from University of Georgia, Athens, GA in 1996.
