An unfolding mystery and an alluring sensuality mark the paintings of Lisa Russo. Heavily influenced by the technique and style of the Sixteenth Century Baroque masters, her subjects vary from passionate encounters to flights of fantasy. Her strength in painting the human figure stems from her travels and extensive study of classical paintings. This talent for the anatomy gives an inner strength to her female heroines and a prowess to her male courtiers. The combination of fantasy and sensuality create an intrigue that borders on the scandalous.
