Minas Konsolas painting: Attendants

Interactions

Minás Konsolas' new portraits mix a variety of materials on the canvas – in particular, the vibrant inks with the acrylic paints and oil pastel sticks. The infusion of bright colors into his formerly subdued palette of earth tones draws us into each of these portraits. The translucent inks are little bits of personality peeking out under a pattern of textured, gestural brushstrokes (which, by the way, mimic the corrugated ribs of his cardboard portraits from two years ago).
