STEPHANIE FRANK SASSOON
STEPHANIE FRANK SASSOON is a painter and teacher who lives and works from studios in Brooklyn and Ghent, New York. Her long association with Provincetown began in 1983 when she was a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center and continues in the light and color that suffuses her oils. Her body of work devoted to the human torso, its form and breath, explores the liminal and silent world of becoming. Her more recent works, dreamlike and allegorical, similarly inhabit the in-between with homes and castles and tents, boats, and lighthouses, held in a floating world of uncertain peril and possibility.
A graduate of the Cooper Union, she is a former Guggenheim Fellow and a grantee of both the National Endowment and the Massachusetts Council on the Arts. She was a mask maker and puppet builder and the founder and artistic director of the Beaux Rêves Puppet Troupe. Stephanie’s paintings are in private collections coast to coast.
