Joseph Amarotico painted in oil and acrylic on canvas, and gouache on paper, using a surrealistic style to build architectural fantasies and "dream castles" from basic everyday shapes. The overall effect he achieved is similar to the play of light and color found in stained glass windows. He was also a painting conservator who worked on important paintings for The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Pennsylvania Hospital, The Barnes Foundation, Independence National Historic Park, the Free Library of Philadelphia, and numerous others. He is represented in the James A Mitchner Art Museum in Doylestown, PA.
