James Koskinas

James Koskinas is a painter, writer, actor and co-creator of the film, “The Twilight Angel,” as well as a play, “Even if The Mountains Burn.” He attended the College of Arts and Crafts, in Oakland, California and has more recently studied with artists with Bob Winston, Robert Burridge, and Dean Howell.

Currently James lives works, paints and writes in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife, Julie Schumer, also a painter.

The figure is James’ primary theme, part of his quest to know the human condition. He attempts to paint as automatically as possible which is intended to bring forth elements of his unconscious. He adds layers of paint until the original painting has been covered over many times, working at a rapid pace. He usually has more than one painting going at the same time. Influenced by Native American mythology, Koskinas sees the role of the artist as akin to that of a shaman, trusting his instincts and freeing the figure from the customary restraints that painting imposes.
