Joseph D'Alesandro

Homage, 2006

Faceted glass in platform windscreens

In Joseph D'Alesandro's faceted glass artwork, silhouettes of people are expressively rendered to communicate a variety of emotions and feelings. The shapes of figures are created in colors that convey culture, nationality, ethnicity and individuality. Homage contains geometric shapes that form the background of the work, distinguishing the foreground from the background. The artist strives to communicate mood and feeling within a down-to-earth composition that uses vivid colors to portray the vibrant people it honors.
