Two Latest Projects of different stripes (Sound vs. Mixed Media)

Sometimes I really stop and scratch my head over what I do with my time.Definitive and iconic is Billie Holiday's "Strange Fruit" and its words first published as a poem by teacher Abel Meeropol. When attempting to interpret all another poet/singer can hope to do is pay respect to the originators while also hoping to bring the same emotional integrity. It is August 2015 as I write this. It was 1937 when the poem was first published. Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world where racism was finally a thing of the past? "Strange Fruit" remains relevant as human rights abuses due to all forms of prejudice still occur globally. It goes without saying, I don't have the greatest voice, and when singing the words I felt as if my throat was going to close over, but I somehow managed to get this choked croak out nevertheless, a strange lullaby for all god's children who go to sleep in a world most of us do want to be more peaceful and better. rAnd latest piece from "Through Fotheringay…See More

"a higher education" a solo exhibition by Cory Peeke at Piitsburg State University Museum of Art

September 3, 2015 at 4pm to November 5, 2015 at 4pm
Pittsburg State University Museum of Art inaugurates the 2015- 2016 exhibition season by presenting “a higher education”, a solo exhibition of the work by artist, Cory Peeke, in the University Gallery. The artworks will be on display from August 24 – November 5, 2015. Peeke will present an artist talk Thursday, September 3rd at 3:00pm with a reception to follow from 4:00 to 6:00pm.Peeke’s art are a fluid assemblage of societies’ visual debris that that through the layer of tape and glue allow the viewer to have a new experience to a past reflection. Through the process of collage, these snippets of the past combine to become something both fresh and familiar. Peeke’s most recent works explore the duality that is the transient, disposable nature of culture, as well as the need to create tradition and cultural continuity through the lens of the book and higher education.See More

Montage Guilt

In many ways I feel strange/inadequate, like an imposter, for continuing to participate on this site when much of my work in the past couple of years has become more about montage than collage. At the start of the year, having become obsessed with doing a piece on Alan Turing (which turned into roughly 300 images), I wrote this: "...as I continue to get older and work a day job, montages have become a way of compacting creative energy while my time on earth remains a mystery. I like the idea…

Please put a representative group of your works on the site and then, for vast numbers of images, put them on flickr, your website, or another image archive. You can then link to the more…

Fund raising campaign

I'm producing work for my first solo show in San Francisco this coming July (for three months). I'm very excited to do this, however, moving work there from Portland and back, plus production is costly. So I've started a funding campaign at www.hatchfund.org/project/in_and_out

If you get a moment, take a look at the video a friend of mine in San Francisco put together for me. If anyone here can pass this along to fellow artists…
