Their We Go Statement - Francis Palazzolo


Their We Go SelfOthering

2016 to present


Francis Palazzolo’s “Their We Go SelfOthering” organizes unexpected pro-social behavior in a new series of paintings. His artwork devises situations where people engage in vulnerable relationships and expand empathic interactions. His aim is to draw viewers into these paintings by emphasizing the form of the emotional risk-taking. The titles read the same way.

As the series progressed, Palazzolo introduced mirror Mylar onto the painting surface and worked it into the content, applying the reflective medium similar to how his brushwork captures subjects in a social exchange. In doing so, this collage method of opens-up an experiential mode of reception. As reflection is a means to unify art with everyday life, Palazzolo injects a cloud of creativity into the focus of the mirror.
