KONKA

Constellations in Color and Form
November 2 – November 22, 2019
Reception: Thursday, November 7, 2019 6-8 PM

Artist Konstantina Katsela, known as Konka, was born in a remote village outside of Trikala, Thessaly Greece, where she grew up relatively isolated from the rest of the world, but surrounded by the rich cultural history of her home country. She was drawn to the arts from a young age, and was deeply inspired by Greek Classic Literature, and the ancient Greek masters, specifically in their handling of the human form.

In her work, Konka has used various difficult life experiences to translate human emotions through her own artist language. She says “I am a fighter who keeps on fighting!” And that sentiment is tangible in her work. She has created several series of works, exploring a different experience and lesson learned in each collection. Whether she is depicting a representational floral scene, or a moody and abstract piece, she aptly employs light, shadow, and color in playful and dynamic ways that create a subtle air of mystery and seduction.
