David Kontra
Can You Survive the Insanity?
September 3 - 26, 2010

Kontra is a self-taught painter whose work deals head-on with prejudices and ignorance in our society. Kontra has less than 5 percent of vision remaining in his left eye and only a small amount of light perception remaining in his right eye. When Kontra paints, he sees less than a quarter-inch section of the canvas at a time. Kontra’s world is one not of distinct images, but of shadowy inhabitants, hints of colors, shapes and textures which can change at any time into something else. Kontra lives and works near Hartville, Missouri.
