“…Capezzuti continues to be one of the most visible figures in the Pittsburgh art scene.”

Detail, Bipedal, Heroic IV

In March 2020, prompted by the global pandemic, Capezzuti made a radical departure from my well-known work as a maker of giant puppets and activator of community public art events. I refocused my studio practice on sculptural work which, in many ways, was a return to the work I was interested in prior to having children and before my work with puppetry took off on a grand scale. Armed with more than a decade of experience working with unusual materials and a coursing rhythm to my studio practice, I’ve created almost 100 new works in the last 18 months. Serious material research and support from a metal fabricator for the framing structures I use has allowed me to make these large-scale works from an ephemeral material. They appear soft but they are sturdy, archival and made with an environmentally friendly process. Studio visits welcome.
