ABOUT

Developed in collaboration with the corita art center in los angeles, to the everyday miracle presents a retrospective view of kent’s work, bringing together over 40 prints and watercolors as well as a selection of archival materials spanning from the early 1950s until her death in 1986. Corita was an artist, educator, and advocate for social justice whose work reflects the ascendancy of pop art, the spiritual renewal of the second vatican council and the political activism of the 1960s.


Corita began producing her first serigraphs in the early 1950s. Influenced by the medieval art she was studying while obtaining a master’s degree at the university of southern california, her prints consisted of dense, multi-layered compositions featuring religious themes and iconography. In the wake of the ’60s, corita’s interests continued to expand and her prints reflected a more diverse group of influences that included philosophy, politics, and pop culture. 


Throughout the last years of her life, kent also maintained an active watercolor practice, newly embracing the painterly gesture (as she did in early works from the 1950s) and its relationship to the personal. her watercolors would form the foundational imagery for many of her late prints. this exhibition includes a selection of never-before exhibited watercolor paintings from that period, some which meditate on her natural surroundings (flowers, sky, and the water of boston bay), while others continued to incorporate poetic adages and personal spiritual affirmations such as in untitled (1977): “the dark has its own light”.
