Artist’s bio: BÉATRICE CORON collects many stories. Born and raised in France, she was a city dweller, a shepherdess and truck driver among others, then she worked in tourism and lived in Egypt and Mexico for one year each and two years in China. She moved to New York where she launched her career as an artist in 1984. All these places left their mark on her thoughts and her art. She explores visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Rather than leaving an expression for another, her work makes artist books for the viewer to step in, or fine arts with theatrical methods. Coron favors an expression that would englobe all her creative instincts rather than separate. She creates environments for words and thoughts inviting the public to wonder, ponder, and discover a poetic vision. To learn more, please visit https://www.beatricecoron.com.
