Isack Kousnsky – Photography/Digital Art






Artwork by Isack Kousnsky

Isack Kousnsky fashions transcendent images of nature and fantastic cityscapes that are meant to jolt is out of our frenzied, urban routines. He employs an array of abstract compositional strategies that play with the viewer’s perception of space. In the looming, mirrored compositions, we are presented with the very image of infinity. In his florals, we are left to wander through dense compositions of blossoms and branches. There is a bit of whimsy in his creations, as unexpected colors disrupt and further stimulate the viewer’s imagination.

As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals”.

Artwork by Laurinda Behrens





“I have always taken an experimental, open-minded approach to creating images. Recently, I’ve taken to the latest imaging software and hardware, whose advancements have made the process of working digitally far more intuitive.  In my current series, which focuses on wildlife and natural subject matter. Depicted is a moment free of humanity, pure animal instinct, yet it’s familiar gaze forces an empathy in the viewer, raising consciousness to the nature of our own instincts, or intuition, and what it means that we share this with these other creatures”.
