Gary Sisco has always been fascinated by the techniques of the masters, and what makes a painting "good". An expert once told Sisco that looking at a "good painting" was like looking through a window, that you could almost walk into the picture yourself, and that the more you look at it, the better it gets. Sisco has used these guiding principles in creating every painting. "I want to make the viewer a part of the painting and make sure it gets better every time they see it."
Sisco has been particularly inspired by the great French painters of the 19th Century. The use of light and color to create shadows and the illusion of depth by such masters as Monet, Sisley, Pissarro and Fantin-Latour has influenced him to see how he too could create a three dimensional image on a flat canvas.
Gary Sisco has developed his painting skills and techniques by studying at Crealde School of Art for three years and the Maitland Art Center for an additional year.
