Corri-Lynn Tetz

In my work, I want to show the close proximity between memory, subjective experience and larger, social phenomena. Using representation as an armature for paint, my intention is to replace details with an entry point for the imagined or personal. Whether I’m alluding to pressure and performance, like my crying athlete series, or the precarious position of the middle class, like in Housefires, my paintings are an attempt to make sense of experience. Most recently, this involves our relationship to Nature, the (im)possibilities of utopic hope existing outside of ideology, as well as the labor, rituals and absurdity involved in our search for meaning.
