Cory Sewelson Artist Bio:
Cory Sewelson earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art from California State University, Northridge. He has since been working and showing primarily in the Southern California area.. Mr. Sewelson's work is included in many private as well as public collections. For several years, the subject of my paintings has been how we humans relate to nature through the architecture we create. We build and inhabit structures for safety and control of our world, but those same structures separate us from the rhythms and cycles of nature. This view has developed from my earlier education in Biology and my working experience designing zoo animal habitats for a theme park company. It has led to my most recent series of paintings, "Fun House". The imagery is based on amusement parks; both their architecture and the synthetic experiences they offer. The simulations of flying, racing horses, and falling are similar to the real thing- exhilarating fun but tapping into our underlying fears of those situations.
