Corre Alice is a native of the west coast. She is a mother of three creative sons and is a young-at-heart grandmother.
Her mother tells stories that at the age of three, Corre rejected the structure of colouring books and coveted scraps of paper on which to draw. Primarily self-taught, she has been enrolled in classes at Victoria College of Art and Vancouver Island School of Art.
"I find the formal aspects of history and the science of contemporary art delicious food for my soul. The more I become exposed to conventional education the more excited and inspired I become. I am often brought to tears witnessing the harmony and tension orchestrated under the hand of the artist."
Corre's work is always evolving because she is attempting to capture the illusive. Her intent is to communicate energy and magic within the physical boundaries of canvas and paint. Her work is inspired by the unapologetic confidence of abstract expressionism. She has been influenced by De Kooning, Gorky, Frankenthaler, Mitchell, Twombley and Snyder, and relates to the surrealist movement in regards to automatic drawing, using the creative unconscious as a valid navigational tool.
