Legend of San Gennaro (detail)
       
     
Legend of San Gennaro (detail)

New Yorkers know “San Gennaro” as a popular feast in Little Italy, butSaint Januarius I of Benevento has a assorted and pretty mysterious background. He is know as a martyr and saint. Legends claim that he died during the Great Persecution in 305. Artist Joseph Cavalieri doesn’t claim to be an expert on religion but sees San Gennaro being similar to Russell Crowe in Gladiator. This work is a part of a series Joseph Cavalieri is producing using New York landmarks in fantastical settings.

Januarius is currently the patron saint of Naples, Italy. The faithful gather to witness the liquefaction of a sample of his blood kept in a sealed glass ampoule. This is pictured on the heads of the admiring muscled audience. This sealed glass capsule is said to change from solid to liquid. 

The work is made using colored enamel which silk-screen printed on glass, then kiln fired and set into a wall hung light box.

Pope Francis' Dilemma
       
     
Pope Francis' Dilemma

A portrait of Pope Francis, and the many dilemmas he faces during his visit to New York City. Stained glass has a tradition of storytelling, much of it religious tales from the bible. Here Joseph Cavalieri takes a contemporary look at the dilemmas of a modern day Pope as he sits atop a spinning carousel of crosses., contemplating the world. He is surrounded by watching (judging?) cardinals while sitting below an ominous storm cloud representing climate change.

Image of my "Dive" stained glass panel is used in the April 2018 Issue Number 171 of the French Magazine Tenou'a.

Here is the translation of the first paragraph of the article titled "Contradiction of Principle". 

In the paperwork of a pre-war old dying veteran in a room in the hospital, a few letters were found. We still do not know how to explain that this one that you will read, precisely, arrived in the offices of the writing of Tenou'a at this moment and a few hours of the closure. We profit from the opportunity of this strange phenomenon or the occasion of the unknown the dispute to the inexplicable to give to read this testimony of what Aristotle, since it will be much of him in this unique document will have named "melancholy of genius". That there is a line between pathology and the refutation of the principle of non-contradiction, principle which is said to be the fundamental pillar of all logic and language, we leave our readers to decide, it goes without saying.

Following this paragraph is a letter dated 1938.

Robert Crumb (the animation cult hero whose characters Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural became counterculture icons in the 1970’s) agreed to let Cavalieri use some of his iconic images in his glass work. They were produced during Cavalieri’s three month residency at the Museum of Arts and Design in Manhattan. The challenge with these works was to reproduce as close as possible a pen & ink drawing to hand painted enamel on glass. This panel is based on comic from the 1970s. It is all hand painted and set in a light box with LED lights.
