Cory O’Brien Borkowski is a Milwaukee based contemporary artist who participates in a variety of community art events, collaborative projects and exhibitions. Influenced by the natural shapes in topographical maps of mountains and lakes, her work is a dissection and appropriation of these patterns. Through a combination of new technology and traditional fabrication, minimal forms are crafted into a variety of adornments and art objects. These objects are made of a variety of materials and act as an extension of her curiosity in these unique organic shapes.
