Biography from Alderwood Fine Art:
The journey of Cory C. Dangerfield’s rich and eclectic artistic career mirrors his passion for life. The youngest of four brothers Cory was born October 8, 1954 and raised in Salt Lake City , Utah , where from a very early age he developed a love for ‘all things of nature.’ The legacy of geology specimens, native American crafts, and a love of the outdoors bequeathed by his deceased father, instilled in Cory a restlessness of spirit that only was satisfied by frequent trips into the wilds of Utah.

His earliest remembered artistic kudos came at the early age of 7, when a grade school teacher,  selected  his rendering of a ‘horse on a fall day’, to be premiered in front of the class. Dangerfield states, “ that was the moment  I recognized I had something unique inside me- that I might see things differently from  other people.” 

In the following years Cory’s grasp of perspective and the laws of value and light continued to impress his instructors whose encouragement and direction shaped his early artistic endeavors. Dangerfield went on to receive recognition for his work through high school and the University of Utah where he received a BFA in 1977 in 3-Dimensional Design.

Adept at a wide range of media, he went on to work as an artist in residence at a local bronze foundry,  as a  layout artist for Hana Barbara television cartoons, and briefly a ’ boat portrait’ painter that supplemented his meager income while he worked briefly as a commercial fisherman in Florida.  He became an accomplished carpenter and eventually entered into the world of performance as a set designer, technical director and then actor for various theatre groups and film production companies. He later founded Dangerfield Design, where he focused on mural and art installations for a wide variety of private and corporate individuals. His love of geology and archaeology more recently led him to co- instruct Maya pottery replication workshops in the jungles of Belize, in association with the University of Texas at Austin.
Mr. Dangerfield’s legacy, of artistic treasures continue to be avidly sought by collectors both regionally and nationally.

The Spirit of Place- An Artist’s Statement
As an artist Cory C. Dangerfield demonstrates an accomplished versatility in a variety of media. Whether painting, his mastery of replicating ancient ceramics, or the investigation of dimensional  design,  he displays a passion of expressing his personal journey through life. What initially may be perceived as a more traditional approach to visual expression, upon closer inspection reveals the work of a man who knows the culture and society in which he resides and presents us with the shared inner yearning for what once was. Clearly there is a love for all things ancient in all his work.

The realism of Mr. Dangerfield’s landscapes embodies a traditional approach towards painting. The subtle juxtaposition of value and contrast within his palette are revealed. We begin to see through the presented realism into a layer of abstraction, a jazzy subterfuge of line and color not often revealed when merely viewing photographs of his work. If the adage of ‘the devil is in the details’ is indeed true, Dangerfield journeys beyond this level of representation into a world of exploding color and nuance

His paintings are about the sensation of place. For the viewer they become visual recordings of not only the memory of a deeply personal experience of one particular moment of time and nature, but a shared testimony of the sounds, smells, and feel of that memory. He shares with us a personal yearning for the land that exists for us beyond the realm of mere imagery. In the spirit of the ‘romantic landscape’ we sense nostalgia behind the image, a haunting remembrance of things primal and ancient. He returns us to a time when we also walked the land and recognized the spirit of place.
