At the beginning of her career, Corno said about herself: “I am the new Andy Warhol.” It is this energy that has been immortalised in this memorable painting - an homage to a towering figure who was both a model and an inspiration to her. This is one of the most striking portraits Corno ever created. The Pop Art master appears on a stark black background which contrasts with the luminous face. Enigmatic with both a timid yet provocative stare, Andy Warhol perhaps represents a guardian angel who made Corno progress and still protects her.
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.
