Corine Perier creates hybrid-beings in a classic way that makes the juxtaposition of the parts contrast even more. The animal in question, gazing right at you, almost as if to ask: how the fuck did this happen?
It’s pretty clear that this is a question Corine wants us to ask. It’s a call to action, but it’s also an homage to the Flemish masters as far as technical approach. We’re diggin’ a bit below the surface with the first of our mini-interviews, and we’re happy to kick it off with an artist who’s subject matter is metaphorical, yet direct.
Corine Perier is currently having her solo show at Galerie Montmartre at Paris in France, thru May 4th, 2011. She’s also exhibiting at Modern Fabulist in UK, in a show curated by Coates and Scarry at View Art Gallery. She’s talented, and has a message – we’re feelin’ it.
If you are an artist and want to get involved with IPaintMyMind, submit your work here. We would love to hear from you, and potentially feature you in an interview of your own.
EL: How long have you been painting these hybridized animals?
CP: I’ve always appreciated animals in stories and paintings. They have been used since the beginning of times. to portray human behaviours. Since I was child I collect animals’ portraits, books of fairy tales with amazing illustrations, animal figurines… I had felt this need to express my feelings through images of animals and in a slow process, animals became my critters to as I imagined they were in their own lives.
