Here are some of the questions that come up during studio visits, and our best attempt at answering them:
- Who might you be?
Elena Pascuzzi was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and moved to the Midwest to attend college. Sandro Corsi was born in Rome, Italy, raised in various places, and moved to the Midwest to complete college. Albeit totally unplanned, this turned out to be an excellent formula for getting together.
In 1987 Sandro and Elena picked his-and-her MFAs from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as wedding presents. Or, put another way, they celebrated their graduation by getting married.
Ever since then, Sandro has taught higher-ed art full-time. Elena went on to a second graduate degree, this one in Library Science, and has held cataloging and reference positions ever after in university, art museum, and public library settings.

- What is a narrative animal?
If you have to ask... then you already have the answer: just look in the mirror. Other animals show evidence of thinking, emoting, and communicating, but humans alone are compelled to find the story behind the incidents of life.
While it took us a while to notice, the narrative impulse is the common thread between our two stylistically different bodies of work.
