The Circle Gallery at the College of Environment and Design is presenting Stirred Fiction, the solo exhibition of the work of Corrine Colarusso through Feb. 26.
Colarusso’s large-scale paintings redefine the genre of landscape and offer rich, contemplative experiences. Detailed and layered in curious ways, radiating with luminous color and wild imagination, her paintings depict the complexities of humans’ interconnectedness with and estrangement from the natural environment.
Originally from Boston, Colarusso has spent most of her career as an artist and professor of painting in Atlanta. Her paintings and drawings have been shown in numerous solo exhibits, most recently at the Newport Museum of Art in Newport, Rhode Island. She holds a B.F.A. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and has been an artist in residence at the American Academy in Rome and at the UGA Cortona program. Several fellowships, including Guggenheim, Mellon and MacDowell Colony Fellowships, have supported her work. Her paintings are in numerous galleries and private collections throughout the U.S.
