“I’m very excited to be chosen for the W2S program and to work alongside an institution with a long history of supporting emerging, mid career and established artists working in the realm of sculpture. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to prepare and present a solo exhibition at The Sculpture Center and to the positive momentum it will provide my studio practice over the next year.” – Scarpone on his participation in W2S.
“My studio practice drifts through various processes and interrogations concerning the paradoxical power of objects, sensory experience, and the intersection between public and private spaces. These interests have manifested themselves into installations, site specific works, sensory-based experiences, digital imagery and sculptural objects. Tools and processes I use involve photogrammetric 3D scanning, digital fabrication, mold making, casting, and traditional raw material fabrication. A continued undertone in my work is questioning how recalling a moment, space or experience, diluting it and filtering it through a sieve (mental, physical or digital) can create new poetry in what individuals find important.”

Since graduating Phillip Scarpone has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, he is currently a instructor in sculpture at Carnegie Mellon University, School of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
