Thank you to John Kokoszka and Koko Gallery for our next item. John tells us that Giacometti was a big inspiration for this piece. Even though it might not look like this piece, one must use his or her imagination to see that the idea is there. Giacometti is a strong force in his early work and is a favorite artist of his. John Kokoszka works on his welded iron sculptures in a 150 year old barn in Peru, NY. John graduated with his BA from SUNY Plattsburgh under the direction of Sculpture Professor Don Osborn. John's work can be seen throughout the North Country and at Stone Ledge Sculpture Garden located in Peru, NY. John's rendition of the Last Supper, which is life size, can be seen at Stone Ledge Sculpture Garden. His work has been shown in the North Country as well as Canada, California, Illinois and up and down the East Coast. John is currently working on a life size rendition of Goya's Third of May.
