Piano As Art - A Collaborative Adventure

£100.00

Product description

98 pp. Landscape format, with colour illustrations.

Tight and clean, with images as new. The dust jacket is a little bumped along edges.

From the opening to the book:

"Piano As Art is a three-way collaborative art exhibition between Penny Putnam and Shauna Holiman in conjunction with Faust Harrison Pianos of New York City. The art is inspired by piano parts and in many cases composed of the parts themselves (antique ivories, hammers, oddly shaped inner mechanicals and bits of casework). The pieces were made by the artists in a totally collaborative way, and were inspired by a visit to the Faust Harrison Pianos workshop where some of the finest pianos in the United States are restored. Faust Harrison graciously supplied the materials and the show first opened in their showrooms in 2011.

"The art is quite post-modern. It is recycled. It transforms the way that people see a familiar object. It represents a time in history, fast fading away, when all respectable families had a piano in the parlour. Many pieces are playful, even funny, and all celebrate the musical and beautiful."
