Corinne Varón Green

Corinne Varón-Green’s artistic journey, spanning more than five decades, celebrates the human experience and nature’s landscapes in her geometric and colorful designs. The fluidity of forms and lines that she began exploring through paint, photo, and sculpture as an émigré from Perú in the 1970’s remain fully and boldly present in her current works.

Across her varied mediums - paper, canvas, needlepoint, and metal - Varón's art gives the viewer the opportunity to experience familiar settings with new eyes and varied perspectives. Each familiar shape, introduced as if new, reminds the viewer of the multidimensionality of life. Each sinuous line - rising or falling - mimics the rhythms of our lives, like energy ebbing or flowing, relationships nourishing or depleting.

Varón says, “Even the smallest details in the universe which surrounds us are deserving of reverie.” In her expansive body of work, her use of line, space, color, and form reveals her celebration of the relationships and environments that surround us all. Varón’s work consistently celebrates the natural experience with preciosity – a fastidious refinement of the moment with line and color.

Varón was born in Lima, Peru. Today, she splits her time between the United States and Costa Rica. She's dedicated her life to art and education for herself and for others. She recently retired from nearly 40 years of teaching public education and she holds a Doctorate in Cognition and Art from Harvard University, a Master's in Education from Lesley University and a Bachelor's in Art History from Brandeis University.
