Corrine Slade makes paintings that depict black women in imagined settings to create a sense of warmth. The figure acts as a stand-in for the viewer, immersing her audience in dream-like spaces that she herself finds comforting. The places she constructs are environments for solace that do not exist in this reality. She is currently residing in Chicago. She received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in May 2020.
