Artist's Talk: Corin Hewitt
Corin Hewitt is a sculptor and photographer whose work has been shown widely in the U.S. as well as Europe. He is also an Associate Professor of Sculpture and Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts. He has had several solo museum exhibitions including at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, and the Seattle Art Museum. Hewitt grew up in Vermont, the son of the late painter Francis Hewitt, a UVM professor, and Karen Hewitt, a toy designer and educator. For his work in the Small Worlds exhibition, Hewitt created a miniature model of the back-to-the-land cabin that his parents built in East Corinth in the 1960s. In his sculpture, Hewitt modifies the relationship of outer and inner walls, examining the psychological impact of the spaces we grow up in. Hewitt's talk will address the evolution of his art and role of scale in his work.
