John Brock Art Alcove

August – September 2019   In the John Brock Art Alcove, our featured artist for August and September is Cindy Kosek, an abstract-expressionist and impressionist painter from Dunedin.  Born in Pittsburgh and educated as a Chemical Engineer, Kosek spent her first career in the environmental, health and safety arena. This background is reflected in her work, which shows an affinity for industrial images as well as those of the natural world, presented in an expressionist or impressionist style.

Painting primarily in acrylics, she is inspired by the beauty and emotion found in scenes both every-day and obscure, such as the spectacle of a fully-operational steel mill at night, a halo of rain highlighting crumbling stucco on an ancient brick wall, or the haunting image of a cypress swamp in a cool mist.  In her work, Kosek attempts to reflect her vision within its emotional context, while allowing room for the viewer’s individual interpretations.  

Since her retirement in 2016, Kosek has trained at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, most recently in the area of abstract acrylics.  She is a member of the Crystal Beach Art Group and the Professional Association of Visual Artists (PAVA).  Her work is on exhibit at the Spectrum Communications corporate headquarters in St. Petersburg, FL, and in several private collections.
