FRANK MISCIONE: Opening Reception:
Sunday, November 23, 2014
5:30p.m to 7:30p.m.
The Art Parlor is pleased to present the ﬁrst West Coast solo exhibition of California
native artist, Frank Miscione. Frank’s art at once strikes the viewer as a painted metaphor
of contemporary art. It is both an Odyssey, and a performance piece on stage, an
installation’s history, ﬁlmed in pigment in the artists own hand. In Frank’s art his real
experiences render images that are apprehended in one’s own memory. Depending on
one’s own experience, they evoke a response extending from shock and horror of past
experiences to refreshed perception of what is real beneath the empirical mask.
Using the ﬁgure and human expressions as his primary subject matter, Frank’s
destruction of the facade allows us to see how a child or innocent might see that,
“This is not what I thought I saw” just as the gentle and enticing being before them become transformed into a predatory monster.
