About Cathy Corcione
Although essentially self-taught, I am heavily influenced by, rely upon, and draw reference to the Art History education I received at Princeton University, earning a degree in 1974. Some of the painters who have affected me: Morandi, Rothko, Sargent, Ellsworth Kelly, Wolf Kahn, Marlene Dumas, Alex Katz. An attraction to irridescence and shimmer I believe I can attribute to Klimt and the study of Byzantine Art. My passion for painting is matched by my love of swimming...I am a member of the 1968 Olympic Swimming Team, Mexico City. Currently, I reside in Red Bank, New Jersey.
