James Koskinas
Head #32

2019

$4,400

About

This large scale painting of a head hints at Picasso. Both technically accomplished and classically approached, the thick gestural brushstrokes add a fragmented & tactile character to the canvas. Warm palette juxtaposed against cool gray background. This comes stretched and ready to hang. Message me for shipping quote About the artist: James Koskinas, born in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1947, is a painter, writer, actor and co-creator of the film ,“The Twilight Angel,” as well as a play, “Even if The Mountains Burn.” Currently James lives works, paints and writes in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife, Julie Schumer, also a painter. The figure is James’ primary theme, part of his quest to know the human condition. He attempts to paint as automatically as possible which is intended to bring forth elements of his unconscious. He adds layers of paint until the original painting has been covered over many times, working at a rapid pace. He usually has more than one painting going at the same time. Influenced by Native American mythology, Koskinas sees the role of the artist as akin to that of a shaman, trusting his instincts and freeing the figure from the customary restraints that painting imposes. A chance meeting with a lost stallion on a Arizona highway set in motion Koskinas’s lifetime obsession with painting horses. Lately he has added a rider to his horses. The riders have become self-portraits and a search for unity between the horse and man.
