Catskill Forest

Woodstock NY forest oil on linen painting by artist Koschetzki.

Hiking in the wild forest of the Catskill Mountains has given me great pleasure since my youth, a mystical experience in natures cathedral.

At this time the University controlled Art Establishment dismisses landscapes as nothing more then representative copying void of feelings and sensitivity. Yet for me the scene pictured is an unpretentious expression of the enveloping forest evoking a sanctuary in time celebrating quiet emotions. Representative art can elicit perceptions without the accompanying ostentatious cerebral artist statement.
