Colin Pezzano - Soma: Artist book launch with live musical performance
Tue, September 27, 2022 5:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library
Please join us in the Art Department for a musical launch of Colin Pezzano's Soma, a graphic novel told in 45 woodcuts carved during the winter of 2022. A “mundane horror”, the narrative investigates lived and imagined experience, corporality, and the passage of time. At the release of the graphic novel, Colin Pezzano and Sam Gasparre will be performing a live score of the novel animated by Ricky Christian.
Colin Pezzano is a woodworker and craft artist based in South Philadelphia. His practice is defined by utilizing digital and hand processes to pass along humor, pathos, and memory into his chosen materials. Colin graduated from University of the Arts in 2014 with a BFA in Crafts and shortly after received the Windgate Fellowship Award. In 2022, he received the Windgate-Lamar Fellowship Award, given to awardees who have continued to evolve their practice post graduation. During his career Pezzano has participated in group shows, juried exhibitions and attended residencies in the USA and Sweden. He maintains his practice in his basement studio. Colin has had two solo shows, “Contain You” and “Still Life With Dead Game” at Bridgette Mayer Gallery and Allens Lane Art Center, respectfully, and is currently working on a series of site-specific installations to be presented around the regional area of Philadelphia fall of 2022. These installations will coincide with the release of Colin’s book, Soma.
