Open Gallery (Lipscomb University) / 57 Arcade April 1, 2017 - April 1, 2017

Corkey Sinks (b. Dallas, TX) is an artist based in Memphis, TN. Sinks works in a variety of media including sculpture, textiles, printed matter, and video. She received a BA in Media Studies from the Johnston Center for Integrative Studies at the University of Redlands, CA in 2005 and an MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. Through a variety of media including sculpture, textiles, printed matter, and drawing, Sinks views her work as a form of secular meditation. Embracing the human tendency to find (and create) meaningful patterns within the noise of collective information, Sinks work generally explores themes of paranoia and obsession as well as healing through ritual. Her work references utopian philosophies, textile traditions, folklore, conspiracy theories, political movements, and psycho-spiritual self-help techniques, all of which rely on repetition to flourish.
Sinks has exhibited work throughout the United States, Mexico, and Austria. In 2015, her book, Demon Baby Project: Events, Coincidences, and Repercussions was published by No Coast.
