Corkin Gallery presents the work of international artists in its five exhibition spaces. Our program is defined by a concern for contemporary issues crossing the boundaries of all media.
Environmental issues run through the work of veteran conceptualist IAIN BAXTER& who creates provocative installations and was a pioneer of conceptual photography, and Thaddeus Holownia, whose images evoke the vernacular photographic tradition. Their interest in both the environment and sense of place is shared by Ramón Serrano, who paints stark images of Havana architecture based on photographs, questioning the veracity of information and the double-life of present-day Cubans under Castro. The serial photography of Chad Gerth displays a keen conceptual bent, treating themes of technology, commerce and culture. Barbara Astman, in her recent digital photography, addresses the role of the accumulation of images in our media-obsessed culture. Fashion photographer Nigel Scott is a master at capturing the beauty of the human form. Painter David Urban explores the interplay between representation and abstraction, while the large-scale landscape photographs of Frank Mädler seem to confront painterly tradition. Sondra Meszaros produces charcoal drawings that construct a personal narrative using animals as surrogates in the study of power dynamics. Issues of identity run through the photography and video installations of artist Lori Newdick. Sharon Switzer explores the possibilities of creation with digital video drawings. Multidisciplinary artist Françoise Sullivan has made her mark as a painter, sculptor, performer and dancer.
The gallery maintains a dynamic exhibition program and participates in international art fairs. In addition to our contemporary program, the gallery presents photography from both the 19th and 20th centuries, establishing an ongoing dialogue between current artists and their historical precedents.
