Teaching is also one of his favorite activities, in addition to facilitating the learning process. He conducts workshops that include demonstrations, critiques, and individual instruction.

Corey Ribotsky has been painting acrylics, oils, and watercolors for more than 14 years. In his work, he has always been fascinated by how subtle variations in value transform flat surfaces into three-dimensional objects. He enjoys painting with watercolor because of the way the pigment flows over the paper or how it blends slowly when wet-to-dry.

In Corey’s artwork, New York and the North Atlantic frequently appear. Color and light are the defining features of his work in any medium. To achieve this, he uses extreme light and shadows.  Color, shape, value, and light are emphasized in his paintings, providing the viewer with a unique perspective.

With time, Ribotsky began focusing more on how art and technology interact. His immersive installations explored the intersection of the physical and digital worlds by incorporating LED lighting and projection mapping.

“The Network,” Ribotsky’s series of interconnected sculptures and installations, explores the ways technology has transformed how we relate to each other and to the world around us. Since 2012, galleries and museums around the world have exhibited the project.
