    Artist Statement

    Corey Whyte was born in Staffordshire in 1993 and has lived between Staffordshire and Carmel, California from an early age. He completed his BA Fine Art at Staffordshire University graduating in 2014 and is currently studying at Chelsea College of Art on the MA Fine Arts course. Whyte was the recent recipient of The Ingram Collection’s Young Contemporary Talent Purchase Prize in November 2016, hosted at The Cello Factory in London.

    Whyte observes on modern consumer behaviour, his current focus with his interest is limited edition product and the anxiety filled hold seasonal holidays such as Christmas, valentine’s day, Easter and Halloween have on the human condition. 

    Whyte takes inflatable products from these times and uses them as armatures or moulds, and uses sculptural materials which have limited control time, then challenges them by pushing them even further, intervening, contributing and continuing its disturbed state into absurdity, to then boomerang it back into being a new limited product by the artist himself.
