Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Brooklyn artist, Cordès Yorio, in the Rhythm of Color. The exhibition is scheduled to run from October 05, 2010 through October 26, 2010 (opening reception: Thursday, October 07, 2010).
Born in Brooklyn, New York, of Italian descent, Cordès Yorio creates images of pure expressionism, focused on the intricacies of momentary experience and the possibilities that lie within. Her extensive background in stained glass is evident; while color lends emotive and expressive elements to the images, what dominates the page is her use of line, shape, and form. There is a predominant tension that suffuses her work, sometimes indentifying movement but more often implying the import of all that lies beneath the surface.
Above all, Cordès seeks to convey a fleeting state of mind or a transitory point in time; what is felt, what is seen, in an instant, is all that really matters. In that moment, there are no limits, everything is at stake, and underlying it all is a pervading sense of transformation. Whatever her medium, Cordès’ work seeks to go beyond the human face and figure to reach the many layers of emotion and context that linger beneath.
