Artist Statement

Mirrors and Milagros : A Collection of Art Collage By Corinne Stanley

Inspired by living in Mexico, my collage art narrates an engagement with the Mexican culture. Mirrors, milagros (tiny metal figures representing prayers) tin hearts and sequined images on cloth reflect a vibrant and sacred environment. Borders created with loteria  (bingo) cards and Spanish playing cards (naipes)  colorfully represent popular culture. Figures of the Divine Feminine (La Virgin de Guadalupe, Anima sola,) and Frida Kahlo give tribute to an intersection of art and the sacred female journey..

Corinne Stanley is a poet, memoirist and artist who lives in Iowa City. She has published two books of poetry (Breathe into the Knowing, They Say this Is Light), a translation of Spanish poet Esther Bendala Pavón’s work (Silence from the Forest/Silencio del bosque), a memoir (La tercera luz: A Poetic Journey Through Spain) and has a forthcoming poetry chapbook from dancing girl press, (Down into the Upward Golden.)  Her poems appear in Feminist Studies, The House of Zolo, Quartet Journal and the San Diego Poetry Annual. Stanley’s collages have been sold at the Iowa City Farmers’ Market and other venues. Art exhibits include the 2023 Iowa City Spring  Gallery Walk  the November 2023 gallery display at Washington Public Library, and the Art Center of Burlington (February 2024.)

In this touching exhibit, we explore the legacy of a beloved Great Grandma Anne. Through sepia-toned memories and tales of bygone eras, she sparked the photographer's love for capturing moments. The exhibit reflects the essence of each frozen frame, emphasizing the emotional depth within photographs as vessels of cherished memories, echoing with whispers from the past and carrying forward the enduring legacy of a life beautifully captured.
