For 17 years, I’ve divided my time between the U.S. and Turkey. I’ve also had the opportunity to travel extensively. Living in two diverse cultures and experiencing others through travel have provided rich visual imagery for my work.
My gouache series of the last ten years, entitled “Threads”, includes elements from art, literature, and world culture. What seems diverse is seamlessly fused into dynamic story-telling compositions.
“Threads”, tells the stories of how diverse peoples, places and times converge.
SITES, OBJECTS AND ACTIONS
Paintings by Chris Cosma
This series of paintings explores direct imprinting of objects, sites and actions into canvas, recording views from under, above, within and over time.
