Born in Scarborough North Yorkshire,my background is in Graphic and Display Design,Fine Art Photography(BA(Hons)in Fine Art for Design,
About My Art:
using a range of processes and to look and enquire into the painterly look of representation of the 16th &17th century still life to the present day's technology and aesthetics ,this is provoking and deceiving through the use of symbolism.
the use of objects ,images and visual aesthetics of the work borrows from the 'Vanitas',tradition of the Dutch and the Spanish 16th and 17th painters.
the work produced begins as elaborate still life sets which consists of the use of meat,offal,fruit,fabrics,colour,light,and composition,symbolically represents the passing of time.
the sets are digitally photographed and are constantly trying to capture a painterly aesthetic.
the work produced aims to juxtapose the fresh beauty of new life with the decaying beauty of a passing lofe through a series of painterly photographs.
the process of enhancedgigital photography aims to capture the quality of passing of time .
an illusion of reality exploring challenges and reflects the way we perceive preservation and remberance with symbolic meaning whose purpose it is to verify the relationshipbetween the writen word and painting.
objects and materials has been translated through the use of symbolic meaning which contributes to the overall message ,through a powerfull means of communication which coveys the terminology of the objects and materials into thought or memory to communicate with the viewer.
'Vanitas is a specific genra of art in which the artist uses morbid symbolic objects (such as skulls.rotting food,faded flowers e c t).in order to produce in the viewers mind an acute awareness of brevity of life and the inevitability of death.the origins of the term can be traced back to the latin biblical aphorism:vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas .(Ecclesiastes 1:2(vanity of vanities :all is vanity.')

impressed by your other musical choices too
very high proportion of your favourites are mine too
Love Mel Brooks too
Young Frankenstein makes me cry with laughter
admire your artistic influences too ...use of light....thoughtful composition and use of luxurious colour
This is a question I find difficult to answer. I am French with Caribbean and African origins, I now live in Scotland. So I've been absorbing influences from these cultures.
I must add I try hard to do my own things and not get close to a particular artist. I want people to say that 'looks like one of Corine's work' and not 'Corine's work looks like the work of that famous...' .
Sorry I can't be more specific, hope you're happy with this answer. You're welcome to get in touch if you want to discuss this. :)
