My work investigates the physical beauty of common mass-produced objects as they approach obsolescence. Ubiquitous items of day-to-day life – the newspaper, 35mm slide, or hard-cover book, for example- are quickly becoming cultural artifacts as these media change modes due to technology and the hope for a less wasteful lifestyle.  Approaching sculpture, painting, and tedious handicraft with an air of lightness, I aim to remind viewers of the importance of our relationships with these simple but intimate objects of everyday life and to provoke a pang of nostalgia for their familiar physicality.

DiCioccio received a BA from Colgate University in 2002. Though academically trained in painting, much of her current body of work employs the medium of embroidery, which she learned at an early age from her mother. DiCioccio has shown her work at local venues including: Jack Fischer Gallery, Intersection for the Arts, The San Jose ICA, The Lab and the SFMOMA Artists Gallery. Recently she has been included in shows at the Bellevue Art Museum (WA), Pasadena Art Center (CA), Union College (NY), the University of Nevada (Reno), Walker Contemporary (Boston), and Jen Bekman Gallery (NYC).
