Welcome to Corcoran Fine Art
Inspiration can come from the most basic of things. A gentle breeze or a slight mist has the ability to take the mundane and catapult it to the extraordinary. A simple drive along the mid-coast of Maine expands into a journey of the mind that I interpret and express onto the canvas. My artistic style can be described best in three words: KEEP IT SIMPLE ....
Raymond Corcoran has spent the last 30 years capturing the essence of the beautiful NE shore lines. Mr. Corcoran attended Vesper George School of Art and Museum of Fine Arts, both of Boston, MA, worked as an artist in the Graphic Arts and the Fine Arts field, before settling in Dracut, MA with his wife and children.

Our Print Process
On the advantages of Iris technology
“The Iris printer achieves a quality which mirrors the resolutions of our reality than any digital printer in use today. Up close other ink jet printers are stamping a grid in a mechanic fashion whereas the controlled random chaos of the Iris spray gives a more organic feel.”
“It is really a digitally controlled brush with a range from fluffy highlight detail to a wonderful deep saturation in the shadows. What makes this possible is that the Iris prints tiny dots of unsurpassed subtlety at one extreme all the way to large dense dots at the other. Under magnification you can see that different sized dots are layered loosely upon themselves to build this truly saturated color. This gives accuracy and richness from the thinnest tints to the pure color, to the nearest black tones.”
“The Iris print has a three dimensional quality and it resonates in a way that draws you in. Other printers yield a pleasing image, but we feel they are flat and cold when viewed in comparison with a Iris print. Simply put, the Iris printer is an instrument, and in the hand of an artist it will sing.”
