Peter Ciccariello-Featured Artist
 
 
About this month's featured artist...
 

 

Peter Ciccariello works at the interstices of creative intermedia, where process overlaps and defines form and form becomes the carrier for the birth and evolution of ideas. Inter-disciplinary and cross-genre, Ciccariello is an artist, poet, and photographer working with metaphor and allegorical memes. His work is concerned with the dynamics of language and text in 3-D digital environments. He has studied painting and design at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York, high-end computer graphics at Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, Rhode Island, and book design and graphics at Parsons School of Design, New York, New York. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at Harvard University, Boston, MA, The University of Arizona Poetry Center, Tucson, AZ, Brown University in Providence, RI and at the Abbaye de Neumünster, Cloître, Luxembourg. Recent work has appeared both in print and online in, amongst other places, Poetry Magazine, New River, a journal of digital writing and art, dbqp: visualizing poetics, Oregon Literary Review, MOCA The Museum of Computer Art, Otoliths, and Word For Word – A journal of new writing. His image “Remains of the Poet II” was chosen for the cover of Rae Armantrout’s 2010 Pulitzer Prize winning book Versed.
