Collection: Rocco Pisto

Since the 1970s, my love for the abstract elements of nature has found expression in water-based media. Working with watercolor's unexpected results allows one to produce unique, spontaneous works. Building layer upon layer – balancing color, tone, depth, and motion – is like creating a symphony. The paintbrush becomes a performer, dancing across the paper, juicy and full of life.

Though working deliberately, using traditional and non-traditional techniques, the unconscious is the undisputed "project manager." My work frees my imagination and provides many opportunities for magical accidents.
