Corinna Till

Adrian Carruthers Award

Corinna Till is a British artist working in drawing, painting, performance and animation. She uses photography to capture and present her paintings. These mediated images become the exhibited works, a process which Corinna sees as joining together different surfaces and facets of inhabited structures – holding two-dimensional objects in contact with other structures in the world. She has built on this practice by incorporating animation as a way to document the performative act of making and viewing images. Corinna’s interest in space is thus expanded into time: a shift between moving and still images adds to the confusion between two- and three-dimensions.

Corinna has exhibited across the UK, with recent group shows and performances including: Creekside Open (selected by Lisa Milroy), A.P.T., London (2015); Toulouse Lautrec Party (during Bruce McLean exhibition), Firstsite, Colchester (2014); Roadworks, Lock Up Performance Art - LUPA Edition 12, London (2012); Jerwood Painting Fellowship, Gallery North, Newcastle and Jerwood Space, London (2011). In 2013, Corinna had a solo exhibition entitled Talk to the Body at Standpoint Gallery, London. Corinna has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the Jerwood Painting Fellowship (2010-11); the Cocheme Fellowship at Central Saint Martins (2011-12); and the Bryan Robertson Trust Award (2015).
