Joseph Barbaccia is an artist whose practice covers a variety of disciplines: sculpture, printmaking and encaustic, among others. Barbaccia's sequinned polystyrene sculptures are extremely captivating through the bold use of abstract form, variegated colour and pure old-fashioned sparkle. Euphoria's feathery sequins are particularly effective in implying movement and joy. The calming colours of Qualm distract from the claw-like nature of the piece, and Savor is what it is: a piece of popcorn.
