"Unconceptual" (the singular piece), is a large oil and enamel painting of two figures (not creeps, people!) overlooking a large body of water. The shoreline, surf, and skyline are disharmoniously colored, as if obeying separate suns, and near the left side of the frame, a hole is blown through the canvas. As if literally channeling a separate discipline within the dimensions of his frame, Corrigan has affixed a tiny speaker behind his canvas, where an audio loop created by friend (and musical collaborator) Crank Sturgeon plays in a recursive loop. Corrigan may take the concept out of the work, but he can't keep the concept from working.
