Kristina Nemethy is one of the twin sisters of Albert Nemethy and sibling of five. She was born in 1950, Germany and arrived to New York City at age one. In her later years, her father found that the town of Newburgh was where this family of artists can flourish. She was raised with strong influences and was inspired by the surrounding artistic values that reached all of the siblings; who all eventually became artists. Julien, Georgina, Albert, George and Veronica; whose paintings you may spot at auction halls upstate New York.
Augustina Kristina Nemethy started to go her own way, trying different subjects of her skills. She paints still lifes, river boats, portraits, seascapes, landscapes, and emotionally strong depictions of subjects she feels connected to; creating intricately detailed modern subjects with rich colors and fine details. She often varies her media from oil to water colour and other techniques.
There is a spiritual connection that binds the Nemethy's, with the tradition of love towards fine art and the heritage of the Hudson Valley. Being inspired by a father of such talent; studying and experience directed her and made it so much easier to be self-taught. Kristina's work is vast, as she is inspired by many traditional values of painting. Always incorporating her fine art skills, her work is intricate with the finest details. Her work is expressive and bold; making it easier for her work to be distinguished from her other siblings.
Kristina is a traditional painter, and will always have that in her expressive nature, but there are moments where she chooses to paint off the path of her family. She opens a new tradition in her art style when experimenting in other subjects. A style that expresses a rich color pallet with subjects that are extravagant, and bold. As her work is always consistently detailed and this consistency will always follow her no matter what style she is experimenting with; creating paintings that are modern, elegant, sophisticated, and most of all expresses her love for fine art.
