The compositions for the “Still Frames” series were planned as storyboard-sized ink drawings on primed parking receipts. Corsano imagined the receipts as demarcating real yet untraceable ‘locations’ in and around the city of Toronto. Stills from commercial films served as appropriated reference material. Corsano uses two-person shots derivative of both interview and soap opera mise en scenes. Originally, these small ink drawings included text. The text boxes remain in the final paintings as windows through the Plexiglas works referencing the present gallery wall and space.
These paintings are documents of fictional cinematic spaces reconfigured by the potential for the viewer to enact new narratives. The frozen filmic event remains in a state of incompletion as a result of the missing text and displaced context. The scenes depict decisive moments without transition.
