''The human figure, in all its infinite beauty of rhythm, expressiveness, anatomical structure and design, is inexorably infused with the most complex of features: the individual soul.''
--Kamille Corry, 2007
Realist painter Kamille Corry was born in 1966 in Houston, Texas. Her art education took place primarily in Florence, Italy from 1987 to 1990 where she pursued etching studies at Il Bisonte and drawing and painting at Studio Cecil-Graves. Corry also trained extensively with painter D. Jeffrey Mims in Florence and North Carolina. She was later an assistant instructor to Mims at The Florence Academy's summer workshop.
Corry has exhibited throughout the South, including Washington, DC, and at New York's Salmagundi Club. Numerous shows in her beloved Utah have showcased her paintings. Awards include the prestigious Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, the Director's Award for the Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art in Utah and the Achievement Award for the Florence Academy of Art Alumni Exhibition in San Francisco, California.
Currently residing in Salt Lake City, Utah, Corry's work focuses on the figure while incorporating visions of Utah's stunning landscape. Her paintings reflect classical training and fine craftsmanship, rendering the figure in a modern, provocative light. In 2002, Corry started a small art academy in Salt Lake City for intensive studies in the figurative arts.
