Spirits We Are: Vincent Frano
Anchor House of Artists, the New England Visionary Artists Museum (518 Pleasant Street, Northampton, MA 01060, Northampton MA)
Vincent Frano presents painted plaques and banners using handmade paints applied in a careful & prayerful approach to image making. They use mediums prepared with glass tools, combining powdered minerals in binders of solution of egg white, clove oil, and wine. Inks are also made from foraged materials. They describe their images as autobiographical works on identity & reclaiming humanity in a world that labels difference as madness.
