"Surrealism seems such an appropriate style to deal with a very real
period where cancer, its treatments and fears are overwhelming,
crowding out life altogether psychologically. Corinne's collages take us
viewers to a different place, a dreamscape of some sorts, bridging the
conscious and the unconscious world. As flimsy and weightless as
paper collages can be, their content here is heavy. It is this
juxtaposition that makes us want to look and understand
what makes for great art that touches us deeply."
—Esther Dreifuss-Kattan, From the Canvas to the Couch: Art and Cancer
"Her art is filled with archetypes and motifs that serve to illustrate
and illuminate the cancer journey. It is painful, yet beautiful, and leaves
the viewer with bold images that not only linger, but grow stronger over time."
—Scott Bridges, Culver City News
"Corinne Lightweaver paints exuberant and haunting images of
chimpanzees, rhinos, and other wildlife. Seeped in color, her artwork
on a range of themes invites a vibrant connection with the viewer."
—Troy Corley, DigitalCity.com
"Beautiful, intuitive use of color and texture. She's clearly connected to these animals, and she creates an effortless connection to them for the viewer."
