DENY Cori Dantini
Cori Dantini Turquoise Scallops Counter Stool
Cori Dantini would love to dress like her paper ladies and explore the world in their skirts and buns and neat little boots, but she is far too practical for that. In fact, she spends much of her time in her studio in eastern Washington, covered in a mosaic of ink stains and glue dabs, bits of wordy paper clinging to her slippers. After earning a BFA in painting from Washington State University and spending a couple decades fiddling with brushes, oils, pencils, markers, and most recently, the mouse attached to her computer, she has discovered an organic process involving layers and language. It is this mysterious, reciprocal quality of art that intrigues her and makes her think of her works as visual poems.
