"Claire Corey: The Verge"

The Plains Art Museum hosts the sixth exhibition in The Verge series called The Verge: Claire Corey, opening October 10 and running through January 5, 2003, in the William and Anna Jane Schlossman Gallery. Digital artist Claire Corey began as a painter using the traditional materials of paint and canvas. Corey's familiarity with computers led her to experiment with the potential flaws or errors that would result in printing images from the computer.
Intrigued, she pursued this "misuse" of the computer's programming, and began to create her own work using the computer programs. Her works achieve the classic goals of painting blending light, color, and form to create sensuous beauty.
She makes abstract, computer generated and computer manipulated works that defy classification as either paintings or prints. Her in-depth knowledge of the computer and her awareness of its limits have allowed her to create original works of art from the most commonplace programs. Few if any could easily replicate her efforts. Corey has achieved-for the moment-what few digital artists have a truly expressionistic, personal use of a purely impersonal mechanical media.
Corey currently resides in New York City. She received her BA from the University of California in Los Angeles. In 2001 Corey was awared the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art Emerging Artist Award
