About the Artist

Corey Corcoran’s work explores issues of interdependence: figure with ground, individual with culture, body with biology and pictorial illusion with materials. Through paintings, mixed media, and site-specific installation, Corcoran creates dense visual ecosystems. In the creation of a piece, he gravitates toward reaching a certain balance. Color, texture, and pattern act as the primordial soup from which the notion of progress and finality may arise. The images are built from a myriad of sources, materials, and textures.
