My current body of work revisits familiar stories and reinterprets the themes, imagery, and lessons through the contemporary eyes of friends and family. The stories are drawn from mythology, the Bible, fairy tales, fables, famous works of art and the narratives around various deities. Each piece refers to a story from the past and but remains biographically based on the subjects depicted. I consider these works to be collaborative storytelling.
Ms. Curry works in a wide variety of styles ranging from realism to abstraction. Among many endeavors, she has established herself as a portrait artist as well as a freelance illustrator and muralist. She has spearheaded many public art installations in the Cleveland area collaborating with local artists, students and community members. Much of her time is spent using art to make connections between local schools, businesses, members of various communities and artists of all ages. Her personal work narrative revolves around storytelling that addresses women’s roles in society.
