Corydon Cowansage

Corydon Cowansage's (b. 1985, Philadelphia) explores the psychology of space and the relationship between abstraction, architecture, biomorphic forms and the body. Building layers of acrylic on canvas, Cowansage scuffs and rubs the paint onto the surface to form heavily contrasted highlights and shadows distorting the viewer's perception of space. Cowansage’s meditative compositions reflect on the speed of the world and feature invented forms that are simultaneously recognizable and slightly removed from reality.

Cowansage lives and works in New York. She received an MFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011 and a BA in Art from Vassar College in 2008. She has participated in residencies at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Yale Norfolk School of Art. Her work has been shown internationally with recent solo shows at Kaufmann Repetto (New York, NY),  Sean Horton (New York, NY), Chart (New York, NY), Koki Arts (Tokyo, Japan), and group shows at Almine Rech (New York, NY), Sperone Westwater (New York, NY), Ruschman Gallery (Chicago, IL),  among others.


She is represented by Kaufmann Repetto (New York/Milan).
