Paul Glorioso

Paul F. Glorioso has long admired the perseverance and humility of soldiers, qualities he saw in his father-in-law, Louis Campadonico, who cared for soldiers maimed in battle during World War II. After the war, his father-in-law became a paraplegic, but he didn’t complain or ask “Why me?” “He never stopped living or meeting the challenges of life. He was a wonderful inspiration,” says Glorioso, a printmaker, collagist and mixed media artist from Andover, N.H. As he thinks about the soldiers who’ve been injured in war, he hopes care for them extends to their families to ensure every opportunity for a productive life.

Will You Please Take Care of Me

67 x 32 x 8.5 in.

Mixed Media: Plaster, Wood, Metal, Cloth, Sissel and Paint

Glorioso, whose work is included in the permanent collections of the Islip Art Museum and Nassau Community Community in New York, bought this figure of an U.S. Army infantryman at an auction with the intent to create an homage to soldiers who put their lives on the line daily to defend America. He painted the words “Will You Take Care of Me” on the back as a plea and reminder that there should never be any question as to the care a service person should receive.
