ARTIST STATEMENT :
My name is Myrna Kcomt. I am a pediatric and general anesthesiologist at New York Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, NY. I started learning oil painting more than 12 years ago. It was something I always wanted to learn, and I fell in love with it instantly. As you can see from my paintings, I love colors and bold strokes. I think that oil painting is such a beautiful medium in which to express yourself. It is forgiving, and with each stroke you can build more and more over it.
The name of this exhibit, “Moments of a Life,” was chosen because I have been painting these pictures during the almost two years of this ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Each painting represents a different state of mind - from the painting of the pure smiles of children in the Andes of Peru to the latest painting of a man bending over in utter exhaustion.
