Rod Thomas Zullo

Rod's Grandmother was a painter and encouraged his parents to send him to private art lessons with a well-known Buck's County impressionist at the age of five. The consummate student of art, Rod continually searches for his own truth. Traveling abroad has exposed him to a variety of art styles, mediums and messages. By studying past and present masters, Rod explores sculpture as a metaphor of the present world. Under the guidance and mentoring of Floyd T. De Witt, Rod strives to see beyond the literal and narrative to create work that is contemplative and metaphorical yet based on traditional foundations. His goal is to see the abstract forms in nature and express this in sculpture by marrying the components of discipline and creativity to express a concept rather than an image.
