Michele Corazzo

Starting with autobiographical fragments of her life, Michele Corazzo carefully transforms these details into universal statements that resonate with everyone. Her trail series, for example, uses the lines of the paths she hikes with her family. She draws around the paths, which are removed from their normal context to become ambiguous and suggestive. Her ticket punch series began with the hole left by a conductor’s punch in her commuter train ticket. The shapes are curious in themselves but also offer a portal into an inner world. As she used this device, she became more and more confident in revealing her unconscious, which is what her latest work is about. Corazzo also does sculptures in many materials including clay. The recent pieces have qualities that reflect her drawings.

Finding a headless action figure on the street recently triggered a series that addresses her concerns about world violence and how children are influenced.
