Paul on

Special thanks to writer/artist/curator Stephen Maine and editor David Cohen for a nice review of my show at 210 Gallery.

Obviously, I enjoy favorable reviews, but I really enjoy when someone truly gets it. Here's my favorite line from the review:

"Trained at RISD and Hunter College, Corio maintains close ties to the latter institution’s “color painters” and brings a hard-earned sense of humor and mischief to Josef Albers-derived abstraction rooted in the phenomenology of optical sensation, a branch of contemporary art not exactly known for big laughs."
