‘The roots of Corinna’s work may be in German Expressionism – The darkness, the colours, the bold, solid forms, the sense of something just out of reach …this is exciting, tantalizing work’
Sue Roe, Author of ‘The Private Lives of the Impressionists’ and ‘ Gwen John- A Life’ 2008
‘It is not often I visit an exhibition which changes the way I look at the world’
Helen Parrott (Arts Council Of England) 2008 ‘On The Pull’ solo exhibition)
‘Corinna explores the social interactions and relationships of both individuals and groups of people, often women and in threes, with gentle humour and a grain of grit. The effect is to leave you smiling with the residue of some kind of shared experience’
Bath Contemporary 2012
Combined with mastery of execution, Corinna Button conquers our imagination by placing a perennial mirror into our collective human experience.’
