STATEMENT: “Today in an age of mechanical reproduction, there is still something of the magical in the representation of an animal by hand. A part of the power of Joseph Piccillo’s work lies in his ability to dazzle us with sheer technical mastery. The hand is flawless, and Piccillo is a magician who reveals the secret of his trick at the same time he compels your amazement.” – Reagan Upshaw, 1996
