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 colorful objects that play with ideas of perception and merge with existing architecture and the natural landscape. He is currently a 2018 MFA candidate at Stanford.

He considers his painted objects as visual instruments of measure: tools for visual play which illuminate color relationships through a blending of language, form, and placement. If these instruments can be used to connect color with language, abstraction with representation, chromatic difference with living diversity then they assert an experiential value that he believes to hold unique potential for each viewer to navigate.
