Cognition is a perception of the present. A variety of stimuli such as bodily senses, thoughts, emotions, and impulses impose upon us simultaneously. Internal experience is the counterpart of observational artwork. Studying their relationship reveals the qualities of both.    

 

As someone with Attention Deficit ‘Disorder’ (ADHD), I aim to spread empathy and awareness for people who perceive differently.  Sites that inform on ADHD frame symptoms with a limited perspective and negative connotation. Art empowers the individual and departs from preconceptions.

Cory Levy (b.1998) grew up in Sayville, NY, a quiet community off the coast of Long Island. Living among the ocean, flourishing vegetation, and indigenous wildlife cultivated his gratefulness for the environment. He first pursued art education in 2014 at the College for Creative Studies, Detroit. Partaking a course in automotive design, he was encouraged to accrete non-objective forms into vehicle concepts. As an alternative, he delineated areas of light and texture on paper with ink outlines. This Emphasis process developed billows of an enigmatic sculptural quality. Two years later, Charcoal Emphasis/ Unforeseen Reign of Steel showed at the Heckscher Museum’s Long Island’s Best exhibit. He then attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City (2016-2020) and earned a bachelor's in Illustration. Professors there introduced an array of sculptural mediums and the austere techniques of traditional realism. Conforming to the latter brought him great difficulty. Aversion led to a realization. Accepting a proclivity to draw continually with observed movement, he made drawings idiosyncratic to his experience of a given moment. Levy began welding in 2018. The resulting sculptures were a means to reveal space recorded within preliminary life drawings. Initially, lines on paper transformed into diagrammatic renditions. Systematic labeling and varying shades of grey predetermined the depth and curvature of steel components. By 2020 Denise Bibro included Glassesman at “Art From the Boros VII '' in Chelsea, NY. Levy’s most recent metal works elicit the characteristics of lines.
