In this striking painting, Corno captures a raw form of virility. The slightly tussled dark hair of the figure reminds the viewer of the animal strength of men, while the look in the eyes and the soft features evoke a deep state of calm. The yellow background radiates a solar energy that gives life to the image. The large size of the painting gives it immense power. Boy #1 imposes itself to the viewer with an explosive outrageousness that surpasses the field of vision and conscious perception of the viewer. Based in excessiveness, this powerful creation turns nature on its head and leaves us tunned and admiring.
Corno is a canadian artist internationally celebrated for her colorful paintings that combine bold new expressionist brush strokes with edgy contemporary portraiture. She paints large scale human faces and torsos that reflect the mastery she has gained from a career spanning 30 years.
