BIOGRAPHY

John Adduci was born in Chicago in 1948, received a Bachelor of Arts from Southern Illinois University in 1971, and a Master of Fine Arts from Arizona State University in 1975. For thirty years, he has been working from his Chicago studio, a former C.T.A. substation in the Historic Old Town district, as an internationally recognized artist utilizing the fluidity of metal to explore unexpected interpretations of recognizable forms.

Adduci Sculpture, Inc. has a history of public projects; fabricating, restoring and installing sculpture for prominent artists and public institutions.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Sculpture excites our intuition to explore, to see all sides. It is an on-the-street experience with art. That interaction challenges our right to take up space, it is powerful and audacious. By proximity, outdoor sculpture confronts, creates dialog and educates.
