Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao // CHIAOZZA

Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao are an American artist duo whose work explores play and craft across a range of media, including painted sculpture, installation, collage and photography. Also known as CHIAOZZA (pronounced like “wowza” or “yowza”), Adam and Terri have exhibited their collaborative work in solo exhibitions in New York and Philadelphia, in numerous group shows around the US, and in a variety of art and design venues internationally. The studio was founded in 2011 and is based in New York City.

Featured above is their Impossible Staircase, wooden sculptures, a Puzzle Painting, a Ceramic Puzzle, Paper Plants, Lump Nubbins sculptures (transformed recycled paper pulp), and Desert Plants.  The duo’s “collaboration games,” the ceramic puzzles and Virka series, are especially interesting to me.  I love the experiment of two collaborators using the same exact materials and inspiration and then, with the same goal in mind, creating something distinctly different yet complimentary.
