Inspiration for Enigma
The inspiration for Enigma lay in the thought of carnival masks impulsively springing to life after the exuberant joys, the debonair charms, and the sophistries of love ended in the wee hours of the morning. The doors are closed, the lights are off and the party is now a memory – but the masquerade continues. Painting is for me the font of eternal youth in the expression of vibrancy, experimentalism and optimism.
Mrs. Mina Greco-Hall was born and raised in Taranto, Italy. She studied art there and in Milan. She has exhibited in several Italian and U.S. cities and has won some national and international prizes and awards.
