Artist Profile

Ralph Corners has evolved a unique use of the drawing medium to create a background of patterns and textures onto which he delicately “stitches” his iconic figures tinged with a witty and amusing sense of humor.  He has a conscious and deliberate style of drawing.  It is not his goal to render a three dimensional illusion, rather his drawings effectively express a wordless parable of a hidden part of existence.
