Jim Piskoti Art Reception at Blue Line Arts – September 16
Combining the traditional medium of acrylic paint with new technology, motorized parts, and LED lights, Piskoti’s works border on satire, while commenting on important social issues ranging from the death penalty to America’s eating habits.
After receiving his Masters in Art from Yale University, Jim Piskoti taught painting and printmaking at the California State University, Stanislaus in Turlock until his recent retirement in 2005. His large-scale paintings are meticulous depictions of the darker side of California life. Interactivity plays a key role in his mixed media work, as viewers activate sensors that set the work in motion. Since the audience becomes physically engaged with his ‘hands on’ work, they are forced to contemplate their own lifestyle choices and their relationship to Piskoti’s subjects.
