“Ko’s artistic process fuses photography and painting. Reworking her photos with the eye of a painter, she integrates heterogeneous elements to generate original digital collages.

​At the same time, photography is literally embedded in her canvases, lending the

work a soul and substance that is adorned by the colors of the painting. She also sometimes uses shreds of torn paper – either lace or printed paper – which add relief to the work and animate the surface with splashes of bright color, embellishing silhouettes that do not have a clear outline; instead, it is the color that defines the shapes and gives them life, liberating them to escape and spread, apparently dissolving the provisional form.

It is this exuberance that is initially striking in Corine Ko’s work, the willful freedom with which color overflows and surpasses contour, and reigns supreme in a universe without spatial or temporal points of reference.

In this depthless space where the subjects sometimes seem to be caught in suspension or equilibrium, the thread is the only point of contact with the world and between beings.

Being connected, maintaining a link, not losing the thread, is perhaps one of the keys to understanding this otherwise enigmatic work.

The thread that wanders from one painting to another as an obsessive leitmotif is doubtless much more than an incidental accessory: it is at once the thread of life with which the subjects are playing and the common thread that links the various pictures, it innervates the painting and traverses the image, giving it direction, meaning, and polarity.

​From one work to the next, a sensual and poetic feminine universe is emerging, filled with softness, grace and mystery.
Originally from the Paris area, Corine Ko has lived and painted in Marseille since 1998.”

Brigitte Mezzadri
