Statement

In the theatre world, the actor/character separation is always a dilemma. In the Ancient world, the mask was the solution.

I needed a change after painting on canvas for the last four years. In my case, the mask is my tool for impersonating a sculptor and re-working all the cardboard boxes that come through my store.


About the Artist

Minás Konsolas was born in Greece and has lived in Baltimore since 1976, where he graduated from the Maryland Institute, College of Art. He is owner of Minás Gallery, an outlet for poetry, both visual and verbal. The gallery, one of Baltimore’s alternative art spaces, is located above his boutique in Hampden. It has been a gathering spot for local artists, writers and performers since 1992.

His work has appeared in numerous literary journals, including Poems Against War, Maryland Poetry Review and Passager. His original artwork and reproductions are widely collected, locally, nationally and abroad.
