SHERYL RUTH KOLITSOPOULOS

 

STATEMENT

The focus of my work is the beauty that I find within life, nature and within ourselves. My art is inspired directly from my life experiences. It is derived from raw emotions that are recorded and transformed into color, line, shape and composition. Nature with its mountains, sky and sea present a never ending source of inspiration. I am also moved by the simplest form of human acts.

Whether it is a young woman trying on her wedding dress or a young man caught up in the emotions of music and dance.

Drawing is a passion of mine. I use drawing to sculpt the image that I want to create no matter what the medium. I try to make my work as personal for the viewer as it is for me.

My work is the culmination of past and present aspects of art that are combined to create a 21rst century vision in the field of figurative and landscape art.
