Statement

 

Corinne Lapin-Cohen

             Corinne Lapin-Cohen is a Katonah artist working in multi media.

 

Creative expression is not a choice but a passion- a basic necessity - as intuitive as blinking my eyes.

When facing a blank canvas, I often don’t know what will appear.

My energy flows and a painting appears.

I want to create art that evokes both thought and emotion.

My abstract paintings are oil or flashe paint, often with threads adding dimension and texture. I use broken mirror and glass to create work that is never seen the same way twice.

In my collage art, I might use paper, cardboard, thread, jute, glass, mirror, paint, keys or whatever to tell a story….

Confronting Cancer Through Art is a series of paintings and works on canvas exploring the scarring and complexity of emotions once a diagnosis of cancer is given. These paintings are a personal exploration of my own scarring and survival

This work is the stitching back together of body and soul.

As a botanical artist, I specialize in watercolor paintings on vellum or paper. For my metalpoint drawings I use sterling silver or gold on specially prepared surfaces. I am an instructor and coordinator of botanical art classes at StoneHouse Studio in Katonah, Westchester County, NY.

 

Corinne’s work has been exhibited in numerous arboretums, galleries and museums throughout the country. She is in the permanent collection of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation at Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, Pa. Her original paintings and limited edition prints are widely collected.
