Corrina Sephora is a mixed media artist specializing in metal sculpture, painting, and installation who has lived and worked in Atlanta, GA, for 24 years. Corrina works with universal and personal themes of loss and transformation, within the context of contemporary society. In Corrina’s most recent bodies of work, she is exploring lunar images, cells, and the universe as “meditation in the making.” In a concurrent body of work, she has delved into the physical transformation of guns, altering their molecular structure into flowers and garden tools through hot forging the materials. Her work has led her to community involvement with the conversation of guns in our society.
Corrina earned her BFA in Metals and Sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, in 1995. She received her MFA in Sculpture in 2005 from Georgia State University and has done residencies throughout the US and abroad.
She works individually and collaboratively, creating a dialogue with personal psychology and social interest, producing art, teaching, and executing public and private commissions.
A selection of her awards includes: “Best in Show” Annette Cone-Skelton of MOCA GA and “Best in Show” and “First place” at the National Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition in North Charleston. Corrina’s work is on permanent display at The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, The Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Atlanta Jewish Academy (formerly Greenfield Hebrew Academy), and in the collection of The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, and in national private collections, including Elton John.
