Metaphysical Dreamweaver: The Art of Enrico V. Pinardi


Metaphysical Dreamweaver: The Art of Enrico V. Pinardi


Essay by Francine Koslow Miller

With the guidance and teachings of a sculptural apprenticeship in his grandfather’s workshop along with training at the Museum School in Boston, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Massachusetts College of Art, Enrico V. Pinardi emerged as a leading figure among celebrated Boston painters, sculptors, and draftsman. Pinardi’s work reflects the heritage of early twentieth-century surrealism while showcasing a minimalistic approach, trompe l’oeil style, and creative skill across several media. Throughout his prolific career, Pinardi produced a series of paintings and sculptures dealing with both the dream world and the viewer’s consciousness by integrating art historical and religious symbols into his own experiences. Pinardi has developed an individual style that honors, builds upon, and establishes new modes of dealing with the subconscious. This book, which includes an in-depth essay by Francine Koslow Miller and 125 full-color illustrations, will introduce the reader to Pinardi’s distinct career as he weaved his unique life experience into a body of thought-provoking art.
