Opening Reception, Friday December 18th, 6 - 9pm

Cora returns to Palm Springs with his latest solo exhibition THE WOMEN OF VLADIMIR at the Jorge Mendez Gallery through January 31, 2016 – this marks his third exhibition at the gallery.

Almost all of Cora’s work is executed in a series -- previous series include: the apostles, flowers, heads, portraits, bodegones, and women. He first conceptualizes a topic and then begins to paint without a sketch – characteristic of the spontaneity and discipline for which he is known. His wife, Mary, has been his main inspiration and muse for his series about women, and lately he’s been painting portraits of his two daughters, Adilene and Alica, as well. THE WOMEN OF VLADIMIR represents some is his most provocative works while maintaining his sensitivity and respect for the subject matter. This exhibit is rich, both in color and culture, and certain to add to the storied progression of his work.
