Fashion, females, fabric and jewellery are the aesthetic concerns of Corinne’s work.
The setting is firmly rooted in the film and literary noirs of the 40s and 50s. Each work takes place in the close and intimate interiors dominated by a solitary female figure. The dim artificial lighting is evocative of a city at night. This is a city populated with femme fatales often in an ambiguous state of dress or undress. Hardboiled men are ever absent from the scene or just out of the picture but their presence is recurrently implied.
The works ooze sensuality and glamour but are often underscored by a darker narrative. Where there is a narrative it is always obscured, much like the female form adorned in clothing and jewellery. This is a highly stylised vision of femininity suggesting both fragility and sexual power. It is an ephemeral vision set in an epoch where all popular cultural ideas about femininity were about to shatter into the feminist resurgence of the 1960’s Corinne’s friends are her models. She styles them in her own fashions and accessories.
A collector of vintage fashions for many years Corinne adorns her models to create her original paintings. Corinne has exhibited her paintings in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Melbourne for more than ten years. She paints full time from her home in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales. Cameron, her husband frames all of her work in house as part of their custom picture framing business Two Seas Creative.
