About this show Cornett says, “I assemble my work piece by piece using a sheep here and a ceramic chicken there. Childhood memories, musings on age, thoughts about the world in general all inform the work in different ways. I alternate between making large, vivid strokes of vibrant color in chalk pastel and creating finely rendered small pen and ink studies. Each helps me see more clearly and emboldens my work.”
Cornett’s drawings and paintings have won numerous awards and been exhibited frequently throughout the Washington, DC area.
