High-key, even gaudy, color has been a consistent characteristic of Joe Zucker's work. The bright color, together with the prosaic subject matter, evokes an amusement park sensibility - a world of cotton candy, colored popcorn. Without denying the joyous, humorous, or even the kitsch quality of his work, Zucker asserts that formal considerations are equallysignificant. He constructs his pictures in a highly disciplined and complex manner which requires simultaneous manipulation of color, material, form and image. It is his sophisticated knowledge of abstract picturemaking utilized in the creation of his work which gives enduring, as well as immediate, pleasure to the viewer.
