Corinna D’Schoto [b. 1987, USA] works predominantly in painting, sculpture & installation. D’Schoto is interested in the physicality of painting and the after-life of image. In her work she often explores ways to reinterpret and redefine spaces that can be both familiar and alien. D’Schoto received her BFA in 2013 in Sculpture and Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, her MFA in 2018 from Glasgow School of Art.
In [working title] D’Schoto plays with the object-hood of painting, through exploring and expanding flat systems and structures used to represent images, bodies, spaces, and ideas- and how these representations both inform and form identity and place. Her work plays with the distortion and disorientation that occur when pulling these things apart; pushing perspective shifts in relation to the body and to the object. These shifts call into question the navigated experience of memory and the (re)interpretation of form and space. D’Schoto uses color and form to simplify, abstract, and highlight these relationships within a contained space.
