Joe Ferriso a native of Long Island, NY, and a graduate of Cooper Union, moved to San Francisco in 2009. Utilizing building materials like plywood and house paint, he creates objects and installations which foreground color as subject matter. These works seek to connect color with language, abstraction with representation, and chromatic difference with living diversity. He is currently a 2018 MFA candidate at Stanford.
