Possessing a sure stroke, Corine turned naturally to the Fine Arts and attended the National School of Fine Arts. She trained as a designer and worked in industry for twenty years, finally moving away from the sector to take on painting, listening to her gestures and choosing her own subjects of study and research.
A native of Dunkirk, Corine returns regularly for the carnivals: surprising places populated by strange figures. Armed with a notebook, she makes many sketches on the spot. Back in the studio, she paints several paintings at once in just a few days, all with the joyful sound of fifes and drums going on in her mind. She seeks to demonstrate the commitment of these people, transformed by joyousness and by life, to point out the folly, the excess, and the amazing elegance, all between violence and passion. The energy displayed by the carnival-goers gives Corine a vitality that she tries to translate to her work.
Over time, she has moved away from a simple representation of the carnival, giving her an excuse to keep only the unique faces, the gaping mouths and the hilarious laughter.
Corine works in ink, watercolour, chalk and acrylic with brushes and bamboo on canvas, paper or cardboard. She researches and experiments, with the sole aim of the indecent pleasure of showing her work. The emotions are reflected in red, black, brown and white, but the colour is a pretext, it is the strokes that are a necessity.
Corine explores the nude from live models. In her drawings, she questions what symbols and myths the body and landscapes carry. The water mixed ink takes possession of the paper and the lines mark her movements, the temporality of her strokes. With black lines, of more or less thickness, she plays with the emptiness, making shapes and silhouettes appear.
