Going to Pots, 2000

Ben Konis

Pastel on Paper

Unusual compositions and dramatic times of day, striking lighting, and daring colors are what mark the work of Ben Konis, reflecting his love for the Texas Panhandle. His work often portrays modern Native Americans as principal subjects of his pieces. Captivated by images of the Southwest, he sold his business in New York City and lived out his life in Amarillo to pursue his art.
