Get to Know the Austin Artist: Jean Synodinos
I reject creative specialization and believe that creativity comes to us in many ways, over time. Every creative itch deserves to be scratched, and our job is to learn our crafts, do the work, and get out of our own way. I paint because I woke up on June 1st, 2013 and simply knew it was time.
My work is an abstract exploration of the perfect imperfection of curves implied by nature, as well as the lines imposed upon nature by people.
Contrasts are key--through color, textured surfaces, and the addition of other media to the canvas. The majority of pieces are resined to enhance contrast, brilliance, and color.
In addition to canvases, my work in concrete seeks to be both gracefully utilitarian and ruggedly decorative.
