Frank Grauso’s compositions are based on re-assembled words from newspaper text cut-outs and rely on the viewer’s own rendition of context and meaning.

Grauso’s intention isn’t the advocacy of any specific prophetic message or insight but the delivery of an out of context subject matter to ignite an individual’s understanding or layers of thought.

In Grauso’s compositions the repetition of identical texts traps the message in its own mantra of focus. The combination of repetitive lines re-enforces its primary message. It evolves into a repeating echo or chant, further creating its own new intrinsic essence and value.
