Christiane Corcelle

Printmaking and installation are Corcelle’s primary forms of artistic expression. Corcelle’s prints are based on a perpetual passion for composition. In her prints, colors and shapes blend and contrast, creating a quality that is rich and commanding. She plays with layering, the vibrancy of color, and line. Her printmaking process also involves collaging, adding found objects, and sewing.

Fascinated by found objects, her installation work explores the visual potential in these objects. For many years, Corcelle has collected discarded objects as a part of her creative process. In her studio located in an old brick mill in Arlington, Massachusetts, one will find used tea-bags, egg-boxes, lost gloves, run-over cans, wine-corks, camembert boxes, rusty pieces of metal found on the street, colorful plastic wrappers, dried banana peels, lost gloves, and much more.

Corcelle’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the United States, China, Vietnam, Peru, and Iceland. Her prints are in private and public collections, including the Museum of Fine Artsthe Boston Public Library, the Art Complex Museum, the Contemporary Art Center, the Vietnam Fine Arts Association in Hanoi, the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China,and Universidade Feevale in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil. She has taught workshops and classes at the Maud Morgan CenterShepherd Print Studiothe Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, and Framingham State University.
