"I Am the Problem – Solo Exhibit
472 Main St, Ridgefield, CT
July 11 – August 30, 2020
"The journey of visual art starts with a meager expression or marks on a surface much like ones signature it is an innate physical gesture to communicate who we are. Over time artist build upon and extended this basic visual “vocabulary” to expand our communication reach. I have come to realize, when I am struggling with a new creation, trying to find a way forward with the work, inevitably, I will rely on or revert back to that very basic set of vocabulary marks.”

The "Plus Ten" exhibit derived from Mr. Zito's beekeeping, in which he saw a perfectly calibrated, though fragile, example of environmental and social infra-structure and a satisfying metaphor to generate a body of work. Originally intending to make a series of sculptures in the form of exquisite beehives constructed in exotic woods, he realized after making the first one that as much as it satisfied an H. C. Westermann-meets-Donald Judd axis present in his work, it was inherently limited as simply craft and lacking an expressive component.
So he chose to invoke the social imperative of the bee colony by inviting ten artist friends to collaborate with him. He made for each of them an impeccable clear pine hive, a stack of one deep and one medium compartment of the Langstroth type, and asked them to do something, anything at all, to embellish them and allow him to make their beehives part of “his” exhibition. The results express both individuality and community.
The collaborating artists are Carolanna Parlato, Eric Brown, Jill Moser, Marthe Keller, Damon Brandt, Edward Burke, Gary Mayer, Glenn Goldberg, Jim Lee andKatherine Bowling. The exhibition also includes four of Zito’s own beehive sculptures, along with watercolors and two paintings on unstretched canvas drop-cloths
