KATHRYN E. NOSKA
Kathryn’s motto, “Take Time to Find the Unseen” is realized through symbolism, the language of her art. She explores deeper meanings of things which she brings to light by faithfully representing the seen, exterior of objects while revealing an internal, unseen spirit, thus transcending reality.
She paints symbolic scenes of nature in sacred geometry portals where an animal or other element beckons entrance into a mythic landscape. For her, numbers and geometric shapes have mystical qualities that represent the beauty, harmony, and system of order found in nature.
Inspired by nature and having an offbeat frame of mind is evidenced by her compositions expressing metaphoric tales. She loves creating imaginative realism paintings full of symbolism, trompe l’oeil, and philosophic whimsy that inspirit ways to “Find the Unseen”. Her pieces stand on their own, but also contain deep symbolism which she interprets when finished, to determine the title.
Passion for highly detailed and finely blended rich colors, along with multiple chemical sensitivities, influenced her artistic path and choice of media. She now uses solvent-free painting techniques, cold-pressed walnut oil paint, and eco-friendly panel.
