Who is Joe Maller?

Describing myself never gets any easier. In addition to a brief current bio, educational information and an exhibition listing, I've also posted some old biographies I found. In retrospect, some of them seem pompous and absurd, but others are actually kind of good.

joemaller.com - July 2000

I'm currently in production on two new film projects, as well as returning to work on several scuptural projects, drawings and stories. I've also been quite busy with several design jobs. Additionally, I'm working with Bruce Heavin on a followup video to Advanced Photoshop 5.5 for Lynda.com. Somehow I've found the time to travel quite a bit this year, including California, Germany, Mexico and soon Portugal, Moracco, Boston and New Hampshire. I don't sleep all that much.

581 - September 1997

Joe Maller was raised in a master-planned community in Southern California, just outside the gates of Disneyland, he claims that he was born in New York City at the age of 23.

An occasionally neurotic conceptual tinkerer, Joe's work is driven by a patient, yet anxious curiosity. Often working with and repeating common and ideal everyday objects, thoughts and situations; he uses his wit and ideas to transform them into commentaries and meditations about ourselves and our place in the world. He received his BFA in 1993.
