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

Konstantina Katsela is a Greek artist who grew up learning about the fascinating world of ancient Greek mythology, drama, and history. Katsela is enamored and intrigued by the erotic charge found in most ancient Greek art and mythological stories. She is interested in how sex and beauty contributed to the creation of many Greek monuments, as these converging ideas became the central influence in the development of her unique style. Whether she paints floral life or human bodies, her work exudes an air of seduction. Katsela perceives beauty in the diversity of shapes and sizes in human bodies. She is most inspired by the female form, and considers the human figure to be the best work of art. Human bodies, to Katsela, are temples that connect individuals universally; disregarding age, shape, gender, or color, as the body is an exquisite masterpiece.

When painting flowers, Katsela depicts their movement and their vitality with dynamic gestures and colors. Her bold color use, which resembles that of Chagall, demonstrates her playfulness with light and shadow, as she saturates her paintings with mystery. The complexity of her style alternates from using deep tones, such as blues and greens, with flat, minimalist textures, to vibrant tones, such as yellows and reds, with striking textures.
