About the Artists:
Carol Corey is a student of Zen Buddhism, with a deep appreciation for Asian calligraphy. Both of these disciplines have changed the way she approaches her artwork. She begins with scanned ink drawings or calligraphy. Then, responding to what’s appearing and to what might be possible, the image is composed on-screen, collage-like, sometimes incorporating sixty or more layers, often using found images and incorporating fragments from previous pieces.
Nearly deaf and living in a tent on the riverfront, Robert Boettcher was given a digital camera by INSIDE DHARMA, a Buddhist outreach organization that provides assistance and support to prison inmates, recently released ex-offenders, and to the St. Louis homeless community. He creates images of a downtown St. Louis that most people will never see.
