Best Artist Houston 2011 - Joe Mancuso

Readers' Choice: Readers' Choice: Dandee Warhol
Neither trendy nor gimmicky, Joe Mancuso consistently produces solid, stunning work. Floral forms are his stock in trade — a red flag in the case of a lesser artist. But instead of making hokey or insipidly decorative work, Mancuso makes flowery paintings and wall-based constructions with poetry and elegance. From attenuated linear flower sculptures made with white-painted sticks, to lushly colored encaustic paintings, to large, flat blooms made from wooden petals, the artist is endlessly inventive. Mancuso's work is a lesson to those of us who have rolled our eyes at the thought of yet another flower painting.

Joe,  My name is Tina Bonazza Bellamy.  It's so nice to know there is family in the Houston area with real talent.  Love your work.
