OPENING SATURDAY, MAY 6TH, 2023, 12 - 4 PM DIAMOND HOLLOW BOOKS, ANDES, NEW YORK
We are pleased to welcome the artist Denise Corley to start the Spring/Summer exhibition series at Diamond Hollow Books. DENISE CORLEY - COME WHAT MAY, RECENT WORK opens Saturday May 6 with a reception for the artist from 12-4 PM. The show will run through June 11 and be open during regular business hours, Thursday-Sunday 10-5 PM.
Denise Corley, working in a wide variety of media, has developed an astounding body of work over the past fifty years, and Diamond Hollow is pleased to present a selection of some recent pieces, largely from a series of paintings made on molded commercial packaging material. Vibrantly colored, sometimes brooding abstract forms explore the history of painting itself and the magnificence of the natural world, and reflect the deep seeing of an artist who strives to bring some order to a chaotic universe. The recent molded works represent a kind of epiphany which resolves but also extends issues raised by a many of her earlier series such as the wire works and the Tectonic and Synchronous paintings of past decades.
A native of Detroit, Corley studied at Wayne State University with John Egner, Judy Rifka, Ron Gorchov and others. She has exhibited steadily in solo and group formats in New York City since the early 1980s. For an excellent overview and documentation of Corley's oeuvre, please refer to djcorley.com.
