His styles have graduated from various contrasting stages in life, his forms have taken new branching dimensions, the colours of his pallet have interchanged to express a variety of feelings and ideas, and the collection of his work has traced his footsteps more effectively than any road-map. The gradation of George Kosinski’s paintings stems from the movement of the artist himself. Born in Scotland, raised in England, yet retaining his Polish background, George thenceforth has moved as the brush does, with long and short strokes of varying colours of light and dark shades.
Having parted with his architectural profession in the English Lake District, George and his family moved to Israel in 1991, the beginning of a journey that would determine the course of George’s narrative style. While living in Jerusalem, George focused the point of his brush in the regions between Northern Syria and Southern Egypt. He explored the culture and dry ambience of beautiful and ancient cities such as Jerusalem, Damascus, and Cairo, as well as the rich areas of Wadi Rum and the Sinai deserts.
Having built a solid collection of watercolor paintings, held in collections in many countries in the world, George published a book of two hundred paintings, in chronological order, illustrating the influence of nine years in the Middle East on his perspective and brush swipe. In 2000, George commenced on a journey to America, beginning in New Mexico and exploring the beauty of its skies and the echoing desert of Santa Fe. After eighteen months in the southwest, George continued life’s journey to the green, lush forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, in which he explores the green pigment with great enthusiasm. Although his styles are yet recognizable, and the technical aspects of his work distinct, his art has taken a noticeable turning in the Eastern States, created with both oils and watercolours and aimed towards capturing the contrasting atmosphere.
The journey continues ……
