Cora Kobischka is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She received her BFA from the University of Illinois in Chicago. Raised in a small homogenous town in a multi-ethnic family and a strict religious upbringing, her adolescence left a lasting impact. She uses painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation to investigate spirituality, identity, and the human experience, frequently drawing from her own experiences as well as her family's.
Kobischka has been recently investigating the concept of reflecting, the subjective form of observing the self. In her creative being, she concocts dreamlike vignettes, imagery, and fragments of consciousness that form visual poetry. There is a sense of lightness, and beauty, yet also an undulating tone of fear and darkness.
