Michael Capotosto is a New York & Rhode Island based artist, working in sculpture and drawing.
Capotosto is interested in accumulation, envelopment, tension, space and process.
He writes, “The sculptural work is based on knotting - formal and informal knotting. I have always seen that work as a layering, a building, a concealing, a preserving of lines. The sculptures are drawings. Thick, stratified drawings. Hollow, self-supporting drawings. Hanging, dripping drawings."
Capotosto has shown in group and solo exhibitions in Stockholm, Sweden; Portland, Maine and New York City. His drawings are included in the Drawing Center's Viewing Program.
