Minas Konsolas painting: A Tree is a Tree 44

Nature Walk

I'm influenced by the Mediterranean landscape where I was raised and by the American landscape where I now live. Those two aesthetics come together in my paintings. I am making a poem about nature with my brush.

The private moment one has with nature leaves you with an impression that you carry in your mind. I try to express that on my canvases. These works have an imaginary quality to them. They resemble my emotions and memories. These paintings are glimpses of what moved me. When people tell me they get a familiar, nostalgic feeling from one of my paintings, it makes me happy. Even though the viewer and I have different experiences, we connect because we have similar emotions and memories.

Cara Ober said, "These paintings function as a vehicle for memory and metaphor, rather than depicting a specific place and time."
