Cecily Corcoran: Stuck in Traffic

“My aim is to capture simple beauty. I hope to record a glimpse of this beauty before it folds into time. As I begin to create, I look for color, rhythm and balance within my subject. I then determine the light source, because light reveals texture and provides a mood. My composition is sketched using these elements of color, rhythm, balance, and light. I develop my work into a representational style.”

From her studio in the United States to her work in cities and fields around the world, Cecily tailors palette and technique to bring out the essence of her subject. Her specialty is oils, although some of her other works are acrylics, watercolors, and charcoal.

Ms. Corcoran studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, the Bratislava Academy of Fine Arts and received her BA in Studio Arts from George Mason University in Virginia, USA.  Her work has been exhibited at the George Mason University Gallery, The Fischer Gallery,  Northern Virginia Community College,  Century 21 Gallery, Cassatts Art Gallery, Convergence Gallery, University Club Show, AnnMarie Garden Gallery, Solomons, MD,  The Art League at The Torpedo Factory.
