Loring Cornish, Untitled (Cross), before 2009, plaster, synthetic jewelry, and wood, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Orren and Marilyn Bradley and Kohler Foundation, Inc., 2015.58.4
Loring Cornish uses discarded objects such as shards of glass, bottle caps, copper pennies, broken tiles, and metals to create faith-inspired mosaics and wall pieces. Before becoming a full-time artist, Cornish had a variety of jobs, including working as a deejay for a gospel radio station. Cornish says his inspiration comes from God and that his work is a reflection of his reliance on his faith.
