Paintings by Corey Pitkin

Through November 28

Cory Pitkin's re-imagines events & memories in his paintings.  Sequences fall out of place and unrelated events collide to make an entirely new memory, where it is more daydream than chronicle.  It is in this meeting of real and imagined that Pitkin paints from, reshaping smaller worlds into a better place than remembered.
