A cultural icon whose beauty has crossed the ages, Marilyn would have been 90 years old on June 1st this year. Yet, it is still the sensuality and energy of youth that we celebrate in her memory. In her “Marilyn” series, Corno represents this inexhaustible force with style and grace. Corno’s paintings also capture the most intimate emotions of this timeless myth, a natural vulnerability and simple beauty often obscured by the Sex Symbol image of the Hollywood star.
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.
