Corey Escoto is a multidisciplinary artist whose current photographic and sculptural works invert and explore the relationship of the three-dimensional world to the flat, two-dimensional surface of its representation. His multi exposure polaroid photographs act as the structural blueprint for sculptural forms rich in tactile surfaces and materials. Corey received a BFA from Texas Tech University and an MFA from Washington University in St. Louis and has shown nationally and internationally, with select solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; Regina Rex, Queens NY; and an upcoming exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, PA. His work has been included in exhibitions at Smack Mellon, Brooklyn; The ArtHouse at Jones Center, Austin; and international venues including ACC Galerie, Weimar, Germany; Seven Days Brunch, Basel; and FRAC Nord-Pas De Calais, Dunkerque, France. He is a recipient of the Gateway Foundation Grant and the Kala Art Institute Residency Program and Fellowship Award, and an Aperture Portfolio Prize finalist. Corey currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with his mint and cilantro plants and is a single parent of a sapling cherry tree.
