First Trick

NOTES: “The raven’s reputation as a trickster disguises its magical nature,” says Craig Kosak of First Trick. “Northwestern tribal lore teaches that man existed in the confines of a clamshell. After raven created land (see Kosak’s First Land), he again became bored and desired someone to play with. Knowing that man was in the shell, he used all his wiles and, finally, a special song to coax man out of the clamshell.

“Now, we all know that living in a shell is not very prosperous. And the bottom line is that we all need to come out of it sometime. The magic of raven’s trickery is that he uses it to fool us into bettering ourselves.”

In Kosak’s First Trick, raven, perched atop a washed-pebble cairn, begins his song to lure man out into the world. As he sings to the clamshell atop the stack beside him, the power of his music levitates a distant stone. First Trick is a feature work in Kosak’s first museum show at the Museum of the Southwest in Midland, TX. This remarkable contemporary art provides both beauty and inspiration and as an edition of only 25 is certain to be highly collectible one as well.

Craig Kosak bio

"Inspired by the wildlife and landscapes I encounter while travelling I return to my studio with insights about the natural world and about the human condition," says artist Craig Kosak. "Rather than faithfully documenting the flora and fauna, I strive to capture the feeling and emotions these trips provide. Each trip consists of both a journey through the outer world, and an inner journey of self discovery. These paintings are about both worlds and how they relate. "Richly textured and developed using many layers of alternately opaque and translucent paint, strong graphic composition and bold colors combine to set the stage for realistically rendered animals, objects and landscapes. The subjects are integrated with abstract elements and expressive brushwork representative of the inner emotive world. I continue working until balance between both worlds is achieved and the painting comes alive. "Stylistically, my work is grounded in realism, inspired primarily by the iconic images of painter N.C. Wyeth. I am, of course, painting about today s world and the modern paint handling of contemporary artists John Nieto and Nathan Oliveira have had significant influence in this regard."
