Joe DiRaddoCeramic Sculpture
Surrealism is infused into most of my sculptures as a concept that shifts reality into new dimensions. This gives many avenues and entrances into relating to nature and exploring the primal, and gives more grounding to daily living. In my more representational work, I choose powerful symbols such as crosses and hearts, which have such depth and personal meaning as to be transformative and evoke connections to sacred time and space. I want to challenge the viewer to find deep and meaningful personal connections that impart a sense of wonder.
