Cori Dantini would love to dress like her paper ladies and explore the world in the same skirts and buns and neat little boots they wear, but she is far too practical for that. After earning a BFA in painting from Washington State University and spending a couple of decades fiddling with brushes, oils, pencils, markers and, most recently, the mouse attached to her computer, Dantini has discovered an organic process involving layers and language. Any meaning found in her work comes from this process. She never begins a project with a message in mind; rather, the materials and her method are what do the talking. It is this mysterious reciprocal quality of art that intrigues the artist and makes her think of her works as visual poems. For more information, please visit her website.
