About the Artist
M R Corley
At the age of three, Malcolm Corley (b. 1999) was diagnosed with autism. At about the same time, he began to draw the sketches from the TV show, Blues Clues. Since then, in addition to two solo shows in his hometown of Lancaster, PA, his work has been published in Hot Metal Bridge, Up the Staircase, Fusion Art and Penn Review. He was included in juried, international exhibitions/sales, where one of his pieces won a prize. “Three Faces of Malcolm,” which is in the permanent collection at the Lancaster Museum of Art, was chosen for the 2021 Pennsylvania Art of the State Exhibition. “Bruke” was chosen in 2022. “Untitled #1,” chosen by The Kennedy Center’s 2019 VSA program, later formed the “T” in an installation there of the word “UNITY”. “Untitled #1” and “Hoodie Self-portrait” were shown in the Toronto’s 2022 CRIP Ritual exhibit. Studies in Brotherly Love, a book of poems about Malcolm's art and reproductions of the works that inspired them, was published by PromptPress in 2021.
