Cornelia Peckart is an artist and art educator living in Hamilton, Canada. During the darkest months of the year, Cornelia paints flowers. Capturing intimate portraits of these blossoms has become a meditation that allows her to get to know the plants, building a relationship and immortalizing the flowers before they fade. She occasionally adds abstract elements to these paintings which elevates them and creates a new dynamic energy. During the warmer months, Cornelia enjoys the challenge of recording the ever changing light in her landscape paintings.

With a background in installation art, photography and printmaking, her approach to creating artwork is often project based. Her obsession with a more tradition subject matter of botanicals and landscape is a departure from previous work that focused on women’s agency over their own bodies. Challenging societal norms and conservative perspectives informs her work in all of the media she explores and installations she produces.

Hamilton native and Ontario College of Art graduate, Cornelia Peckart has lived, worked and played in Toronto, Berlin, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Rotterdam, Burlington and Hamilton. Alongside her arts practice she has worked as an artist and educator at the Andy Warhol Museum, Art Gallery of Ontario, Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh and Villa Zebra in Rotterdam. In Hamilton she has worked with McMaster University, The Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts, DVSA, Workers Arts and Heritage Centre and Centre 3. She currently teaches for the Art Gallery of Hamilton and the Burlington Art Gallery.

Her arts practice has earned her a Mid-atlantic Arts Fellowship in photography(U.S.A), two Hamilton Enrichment Fund Grants and an Ontario Arts Council Grant. She has held exhibitions in Canada, U.S.A., Germany and the Netherlands.
