Profile of George Kofas

George Kofas

My work is about Spiritual issues: the Temporal and the Eternal.

Art is a vehicle of exploration. It has the capability of exploring the Spiritual and possibly providing for us a greater understanding of our existence.
If the only thing art teaches us is related to the world of which we are already aware of, it teaches us nothing.

My work attempts to explore issues regarding the interrelationship
existing between the Physical and the Spiritual realms and attempts to
present various components of the Spiritual.
