The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
I tend to work in series. Please see my website at: https://JoyceKorotkin.com for Statements and to view more work. My most recent series of works are entitled "Witness" and "Elsewhere: Lost Horizons". Statements for these series are as follows:
"Witness" addresses the increasing dichotomy between perception and fact. With instantaneous access to selective media spin and viral social networking, increasingly blurred boundaries undermine the assumed veracity of documentation as primary source becomes inseparable from secondary innuendo. What do we see versus what we think we see? What do we know versus what we think we know? Wherein lies the boundary between? "Witness" focuses on the eye of the beholder, be it transfixed in the moment of incident, or filtered through disparate lenses of perception.
"ELSEWHERE: Lost Horizons" addresses the widening global disconnect between our disparate cultures and dangerously divisive sets of beliefs that seem to be increasingly on the verge of destroying us all, via what we all share in common - the earth and its inherent beauty, and our natures as sentient beings inhabiting this brief moment together in the continuum of time. "ELSEWHERE: Lost Horizons" seeks to elicit the evanescent moments we all own; those that light the sky and the troubled world below it with moments of peaceful serenity or with a fiery beauty that hangs suspended for but a heartbeat, before disappearing into the jarring uncertainties of tomorrow.
