theStudio Artist of the Week…

Elizabeth Corkery, Printmaker, Brooklyn, NY

Design is a huge component to our company, so we are always in awe of fellow designers and artists alike. One of them being Elizabeth Corkery, a fantastic printmaker from Sydney, Australia who is currently living and working in Brooklyn. I love Elizabeth’s visual study on the geometry of gemstones. I am not sure what it is about the bold jewel tones that I love, but the rich colors and faceted edges have captivated my attention.

 

What we love about Elizabeth’s other collections of prints are the vibrant repeats juxtaposing organic and geometric designs. These constants form what Elizabeth refers to as the “visual language” of synaethesia, meaning “together”, aisthesis “sensation”, it is the experience of one sense accompanied by the involuntary experience of one or more additional senses.

For more on Elizabeth’s work visit her on the web or read her blog, A Place for Print.
