The Artist's Lab: Corey Grayhorse: Surreal Souvenir
Part of Locally Made’s One Room.
At The Artist’s Lab, become part of the experiment in these drop in labs run by contemporary artists who invite participants to experience their diverse artistic visions.
Surreal Souvenir is an interactive photo booth that will illustrate the transformative qualities of set, costume and theatrical language. The project is an exploration of my visual landscape that will allow the viewer to become an active participant in creating imaginative narratives. The product of the collaboration is an image documenting the experience. — Corey Grayhorse
Free with museum admission.
As a native of Venice, California, both culture and environment have influenced my art. A desire to capture imaginative composition led to a study of photography at Santa Monica College. There, I infused my work with the color and flavor of an eclectic and eccentric community. I relocated to Providence, Rhode Island in 2001, and continued to develop as a photographer.
My work is contemporary and studied; everything is by design. A wide-ranging influence of styles in art, photography, fashion, and set design, as well as traditional and pop culture inform my perspective. My trademarks of color, composition, and lighting are apparent as consistent threads throughout my work. All of these serve as a strong narrative in each piece.
