- About -

France born and New York based visual artist Stephanie Corne has had her paintings and multimedia work exhibited in different venues across France, India, and the United States. In December 2019, Fusion Art featured Corne’s “Force of Nature” (acrylic on canvas) in their 5th Annual Colorful Abstractions International Online Juried Art Exhibition. In her past work, including “Embodiment,” “Facemotions,” and the “Vitiligo” project, Stephanie Corne transformed the traditional canvas workspace into a multidimensional stage, painting her subjects in real time. The three projects garnered significant attention for their evocative content, social commentary and innovative presentation format, sometimes combining still photography, digital video and choreographed story elements to document her subjects. CNN and Mic.com both shared Corne’s “Vitiligo” project, a powerful series of portraits of people with the skin condition vitiligo. In response to that series, Corne shared that, “art can be a healing tool.” In addition to her experimentation and hybrid expression, Stephane Corne has also solely used paint and canvas as her medium as seen with “Reflections,” “Irises” and other pieces. Her upcoming projects, one focused on nature and a series on New York, utilize paint and canvas as well. Her “New York series” calls for a vertical format (72’’ x 22’’), as she gives a human size to the monumental element of NYC. The group series “I Breathe With You” at the Augusta Savage Gallery at the Fine Art Center of University of Massachusetts Amherst, Corne’s North American debut, served as an homage to Michael Brown and the city of Ferguson, Missouri. The 2016 exhibit denounced the use of deadly force on African Americans by police in America. On June 4th 2016, Corne presented the exhibition and multimedia performance piece, “Embodiment” at the Waterfront Museum in Brooklyn, New York with two dancers, Julian Watson and Mykaila Symes, and music by Birgid Volens. For Corne, “Embodiment” is about finding one’s true self. “I envision the core of my being as another version of myself right under the skin,” Corne reveals. “This inner self is free in a space of interchangeable colors. It goes in slow motion towards its own refinement, which learns, adapts, creates and gives back. It represents what it is to just BE. The show offers a provocative and intimate performance.” “I paint on the skin of the person, exposing the person’s feelings inside on the surface of the skin, which is the oldest parchment in the history of mankind. It is a special event that transforms a person — a unique piece of art dedicated to oneself.” Stephanie Corne’s first solo show followed soon after, from July 8th to August 21st 2016, at the Kalinka Gallery in Pondicherry, India. Beyond the Skin featured portraits from “Facemotions”. The curator of the exhibit, gallery owner Karine Pelade, noted, “Corne sees the inner motions of her models in a swirl of colors and paints on their skin to enhance the sentiment, making the face and body a live canvas.” This statement captures the essence of Corne’s uniqueness-- her ability to move seamlessly from body canvas to traditional canvas.
