About

Bio

Candice Malyn Corgan is an interdisciplinary artist from the Midwest. She was born in 1990, in Kenner, Louisiana but grew up in southern Missouri running around farms and watching the Simpsons, with little to no supervision. She received her BFA from Southeast Missouri State University (Cape Girardeau, Missouri), where she specialized in printmaking. This love of process led her to study at Tamarind Institute of Fine Art Lithography (Albuquerque, New Mexico), where she received certificates as a Tamarind Trained Printer and Tamarind Trained Master Printer. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Studio Arts at Syracuse University (Syracuse, New York).

 

Statement

I search for meaning in nothing. Referencing childhood, my work touches on banal experiences during adolescence. Through playful interaction and humor, I create moments of surprise, confusion, discomfort, and excitement, mostly out of boredom and a desire to reject the mundanity of life. Focusing on the vulnerabilities of materials and humans, the audience and the work perform; caring less about the precious object and more about the tension created through relinquishing control and generating play.
