Francesco Pelleschi Impressionism Landscape Artist

In a rich, well-recognized career spanning over four decades, the artist has perfected a technique in which subject matter and material are intimately connected.  Just like the fourteenth century masters before him, Pelleschi creates his own pigment by grinding natural minerals.  The powder is then blended with linseed oil for viscosity and texture. 

Each composition is gradually formed with fine layers of color that are applied by brush and by hand over a base of gesso. Because the oil paint must be completely dry before adding a new layer, this painstaking process takes months to complete. 

The final step is a unique speckling technique that results in a hazy quality suggesting the memory of a place in time.  Just as in a kaleidoscope, a myriad of points of color look different from every angle and distance, and under each new light. 

Both his exploration of colors and their vibrations and his research into the density and the weight of the material allow his work to be not just visual but also tactile. Because of this fusion of modern and ancient techniques, museum curators and the art historian, Dr. Jean Audigier, praise his exceptional ability to attain a very distinctive style among contemporary artists.
 

Francesco Pelleschi has earned more than 150 prizes, including the Primo Nazionale “San Giorgio” Award twice, an honor no other artist has ever achieved in Italy.
