Andrea KOSTYAL

I paint expressive color abstract geometric forms along the lines of my interest and expertise in textiles. My favorite materials in collage technique are colored paper, pieces of wood and plastic glued onto the canvas. My fascination with nature resides in the colors that I choose. Emotion, integrity, honesty and power of expression are my keywords. I paint what I feel, but I enjoy calculation and computation as well. I am strongly convinced that art is not just any activity - it is the most important expression of sincere purity of body, soul and mind. One should look at child drawings and paintings as the most pregnant examples of art - they are direct and true. In my art i try to combine and reconcile strivings of the body and aspirations of the mind. This clash is the birthplace of abstract expressionism.
