About The Artwork

Year: 2019 Style: fine art Description: The artwork is from the collection "The City That Never Sleeps." “The City that never sleeps” A collection of 12 (5" x 7”) fully painted prints of her photographs featuring people sleeping in the subway system, steel framed. Artists challenge shapes, concepts, and words. Stephanie has been working on a series on New York. Part of that series is this collection that challenges a slogan about New York, which is that it never sleeps. When you travel through the city by subway, you are surrounded by people who are tired and doze off to sleep. For a moment, New Yorkers are able to just BE, rest, and show a face with closed eyes that is truly theirs. Stephanie likes to observe briefly and capture that moment of vulnerability and therefore humanity. She is very much focused on the human experience in the city, which is daily about going from point A to B to C to Z and back to A in “the city that never sleeps." Need Help? Contact sales@revart.co

Stephanie Corne

Stephanie Corne is a French painter and multimedia artist based in New York who had an extensive experience in catering decorative arts to the wealthy and traveled the world for her graphic facilitation assignments.

Her artwork is abstract or figurative, or both, depending on the subject matter.

Corne keeps on creating artwork because, it is her life. This is what she wants and needs to do. She does not conceive of a life without a pencil or brush in her hand.

She knows, for a fact, that if she stopped creating artwork, she would get sick, physically, and depressed. So if you think about it, she doesn't really have a choice. An artist is haunted in a way. She can see people around her who are artist who don’t create, and she sees the ravage of addiction and sadness in them. She can see also how other people have lost touch with their creative life and sense of self as a result and they aren’t easy to have around. It hurts them and their loved ones. Corne knows in her guts that as a society we would be better off if everyone had somewhat of an art practice in their lives.

She very much believes in Eros as the driving force of creativity and to keep on going no matter what happens in your life or in the world. To Corne, a day not painting is not as good and meaningful as a day when painting happened. This is the way she wants to mark time, the way she desires to see her days go by without feeling any hint of nostalgia.

She paints and life doesn’t draw herself in sorrow. She paints because that’s her oldest and most enriching friend. She paints to see what she can do with this idea she is obsessed with, with this technique she wants to be good at. She paints because she believes in the healing power of color. She loves to celebrate each day with the paly of light thru colors and shapes.
