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 bi-racial family with a strict religious upbringing, her work has been largely shaped by the trauma that she experienced and heals from. She uses painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation to investigate spirituality, identity, and the human experience. Her practice has been an instrument to connect her to a higher consciousness found in the imagination.
Kobischka is currently investigating the concept of seeing and reflecting. In her creative being, working in a stream of consciousness, she concocts soft focus color-rich imagery of places, people, and scenarios, that may be fragments of her consciousness or dreams. Kobischka embraces a kind of surrealism yet seeks to reveal new meanings in the power beyond the mind that unites us to each other, the world, and the universe.
