About Nina Kossman

Nina Kossman,

Ideas for paintings come to me when I when I’m in a forest. When I’m one on one with nature, I become a participant in and a spectator of nature’s cycle of life and death. My paintings are inspired by traces of what’s visible to us of life begun long ago. My art is about participation: participation in nature and in nature’s creativity. Many of my paintings evoke images  of creatures whose outlines were “there”–in the world of nature– long before I came along. Nature knows more about art than man; its art is more urgent, and in nature the dividing line between art and life is absent. The first step of my work, in painting as well as in root sculptures, is to find the eye of the creature: eyes give soul to these pieces and convey to the viewer that they’re observing us even as we’re watching them.

Nina Kossman believes that her paintings spring from a deep layer of the subconscious, and it is the connection, through her paintings, to the deepest subconscious, that helps her survive.
