Rico Lascano


For over a decade now I have been exploring what I call “calm spaces”- the relationship between space and surface, sight and silence, distilling sensation of serenity. I always take inspiration from nature- a quite pond, a waterfall, the heavenly skies, anything in nature that makes you want to stop and reflect on life. But as i translate these images of nature into my canvas they cease to be images and forms

and have become feelings and atmospheres. I want my viewers to empty themselves and enter a realm of calm and peace.
