Pianista Painting and Prints by Michael Frassinelli
Frassinelli is a sculptor and painter who teaches and is the head of the Visual Art Department at the Dana Hall School. For the past 15 years he has created a series of masks, sculptures and other objects from old piano parts, which are displayed as artifacts from a lost (fictional) civilization known as the Pianistas. The series, collectively known as The Legend of the Pianistas, is often displayed as a natural history museum exhibit, complete with text panels, archival photographs, video, sound installation, and a fully illustrated museum catalog. Pianista Paintings and Prints features large and small painted portraits, small black and white and colored prints, and handmade books. More at www.michaelfrassinelli.com.
