David Corns’ work acknowledges the accidental relationship of thought and meaning; challenging the boundaries of media while reconciling the absurd and serious. With a background in architecture, many of his pieces interact with human scale and their spatial relationships. Remixing everyday objects—ladders, tables, fabric patterns, etc.—reconfigured into historic symbols, Corns blends banality with importance, abstracting what is recognizable into new compositions.
Corns received his Bachelors of Science in Architecture at the University of Cincinnati and is a co-founder of Team B. He was a Critical Practice Fellow at Lawrence Technical University in 2016 and 2017. Both as a solo artist and with Team B, Corns has shown work at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Otis College of Art & Design, The Chicago Athletic Association, and multiple galleries in the United States.
