“Palazzolo resides comfortably in his own sphere of reference, a domain that includes a rich heritage of art history and film as well as his own personal memories. His familiar and gleeful attitude toward these weighty traditions allows him to draw from them freely while indulging in a virtuoso display of visual and verbal puns, and obscure references.”
Callie Angel, Assistant Curator, Whitney Museum of Modern Art
