Claire L. Cormany

EastWest Parking — 2312 2nd Avenue North

Claire Cormany is a Birmingham-based artist who employs textural application of paint to gallery canvas to create abstract works that draw a personal reaction from viewers about their own associations with landscape and color. Using brushes, knives, tools and hands in multiple paint layers, depth of tone and shape are developed. Cormany is fascinated by layers of cracked, peeling paint and the glimpses of those “stories” peeking out that lie beneath, with color palettes influenced by a love for all things coastal.
