Corin Ford Forrester – Market Hall Performing Arts Centre 2020
Exploring beauty and sacredness in the natural world is central to Corin Ford Forrester's photographic art. Her work has evolved through several styles. Her early black & white work blended images of the human form with natural objects and landscapes. In vibrant colour she has created stained glass or mandala-like compositions. Currently she is presenting single photographs showing the exquisite patterns, colours, distortions and reflections that are often found in seemingly mundane places.
Corin studied traditional black and white photography at the Haliburton School of the Arts where she received the highest standing in the Sir Sanford Fleming College Photo Arts Program in 2007. She also has a degree in Microbiology from the University of Guelph.
Since 2007 she has exhibited and sold her photographs in festivals and galleries in the Kawarthas, where she is based, and in Toronto, & Ottawa. Her time as Artist In Residence in 2014 among the wild lakes and forests of Quetico Provincial Park, near Thunder Bay Ontario, provided great inspiration.
A solo exhibition of Corin's photographs was mounted at The Christensen Fine Art Gallery in Peterborough during the SPARK Photography Festival in 2018. She also participated in groups shows at The Elaine Fleck Gallery in 2015 and again in 2018. This past fall she participated in the Art Gallery of Peterborough's Kawartha Autumn Studio Tour.
