He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Leo Mancini-Hresko

Posted by Charley Parker at 9:51 pm

Leo Mancini-Hresko
Massachusetts artist Leo Mancini-Hresko studied at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, and then in Italy at the Florence Academy of Art, where he stayed on after graduation as an instructor and later director of the drawing program for sculptors.

Having returned to the U.S., where he established a studio in Waltham, MA, he continues to teach classes and workshops in painting and traditional materials.

The home page of his website is arranged as a blog, with a variety works posted, and you can find individual galleries of work in landscape, portrait and still life from the Paintings drop-down menu at the top.

Mancini-Hresko paints with a loose, gestural style, with quickly noted brushstrokes particularly evident in his plein air landscapes, and a somewhat more reserved approach in his still life and portrait canvasses. I enjoy the range of value contrasts between his bright landscapes, with their evocative suggestions of weather and time of day, and his darkly classical still life arrangements, in which he revels in the textural qualities of his subjects, down to the dusty surfaces of old bottles.
