Toronto-based painter Mara Korkola is nationally recognized for her captivating works that compress worlds of information into compact frames. Often paired into diptych and triptych combinations, these series present slightly different views of the same location. While many of Korkola’s paintings capture anonymous city streets at night, her subject matter has also included airports and landscapes. Like keyholes, her paintings demand our attention and focus and transport us into another time and space.
Mara Korkola was born in Marathon, Ontario in 1965. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art, Toronto (AOCA); Wichita State University, Kansas (BFA) and the University of Texas at San Antonio, San Antonio (MFA).
