Illuminée Studio features mixed-media canvas artist Jean Corby: new work connecting east west coastlines
Illuminée proudly welcomes you to experience Jean Corby’s intricate and expressive mixed-media paintings. Corby, a Brooklyn, NY-based artist unveils new work with pieces created in conversation with Isabelle Brightman, owner of Illuminée. The show includes large-scale painted and embroidered works, and mixed media pieces with photography and drawing. The show connects landscape themes of New York’s Brighton Beach and Santa Cruz areas, in vivid and layered detail.
Jean Corby has developed her art processes to share her love of the environment, wild plant growth, trees and more. She is a graduate of Syracuse University, School of Fine Art and has focused on her textile art since 2008. Corby has refined an artistic process that allows her to use embroidery on her canvases as powerfully as a brush or pen.
The show opens Friday November 3, 2023, with a First Friday reception on November 3 from 5 pm - 8 pm.
Please join us as we celebrate Corby's works and this bi-coastal environmental art connection in our newly expanded Studio space.
Jean Corby is a graduate of Syracuse University, School of Fine Art. She lives and works in Brooklyn, N.Y.
