Local Bostonian and friend Corey Corcoran is showing next Saturday, March 6th here at local gallery fivesevendelle. Corcoran's intensely, layered new batch of paintings resonate feelings between a sneer from an apocalyptical death to a sudden silence after a storm. They are both intense and heartfelt. You can see a studio visit I did with Corey here.
Through paintings, mixed media, and site-specific installation, Corey Corcoran creates dense visual ecosystems. Using everything from plaster to watercolor, his landscapes teeter on the edge of collapse and fruition. Half-dead bodies fill these transitory spaces as gods of destruction or biological fodder for its change. Color, texture, and pattern act as the primordial soup from which the notion of progress and finality may arise.
fivesevendelle is pleased to present Half Life,
an exhibition of new work by Corey Corcoran opening March 6th.
