Opening tonight, October 23rd, at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City is “Birdsong and Machine Sounds” by Chloe Early and “Dear Milky Way” by Amy Sol. This new series of paintings by Early is inspired by classical myth, and takes Adam and Eve on a journey through nature and a post-industrial world. There will also be a limited edition print available by Early based on the painting “Silver Tip Symphony” (shown first). The print is a 20.25″ x 27″ giclee, signed and numbered in an edition of 50.
This past Saturday, April 17th, Joshua Petker opened his latest solo show “Between Butterflies” at the Corey Helford Gallery. The show features 20+ new paintings, many of which are in a square format, so 36″ x 36″ and so on. There was quite a lot of work in this show that I was taken in by, as well as a few paintings that I wasn’t too enamored with. Overall this is a great show, colorful and show the continuation of the style that Joshua Petker has been working on. There are also a few paintings that show a more “watercolor” like application of paint, the effect looks great against the white background each painting features.
Take a look at the preview images, and then head on over to see the full show.
This past Saturday, March 27th, the Corey Helford Gallery opened “Ipsum Factum” the latest solo show from Lola. This show features over a dozen new acrylic painting, ranging in size from the very impressive 50″ x 40″ “Your Ordinary Hero” painting, all the way down to “Sushi” coming in at only 1.5″ oval. As of writing this, the show is pretty much sold out; It’s not surprising as Lola always has great work, and this show is very solid. The paintings all flow together beautifully, and the color palette she uses really helps to bring the world she has created to life, a very surreal life at that. I love the idea that these paintings are made with acrylics. More and more, artists are showing that a medium once thought to not be as dynamic as oils, truly is in the right hands.

This past Saturday, December 12th at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City the “Multi-Plane” group show opened up. For the past few weeks I have been seeing some previews of some of the pieces in the show, one of the great reasons to check out artists blogs now and again. The idea of the show is that “Each of these paintings is an original work created on two layers of glass and a masonite panel background, emulating the multi-plane process developed by animators in the 1930’s to create depth in animated features. Each surface is separated by 3/8 of an inch and the entire painting is housed in a custom-made frame.”

Andrew Brandou’s second solo show at the Corey Helford Gallery opened this past Halloween weekend. This new solo show is entitled “In the Garden of the Mystic” and will be up until November 18th if you want to stop by and check it out. I have enjoyed Andrew’s work for quite some time now. His style is very reminiscent of the art that surrounded me as a child, so I was hooked on the work the moment I saw it.
The new abstract character designs really stood out. I have seen a few artists try this in the past year and none seemed to have pulled it off as elegantly as Andrew has. The pictures don’t show it very well, but most of these new paintings have either gold leaf, or gold sumi ink in them. I absolutely love the linework seen in these paintings. Along with the abstracts, some of the maze style pieces that were seen in his “Mind Manors” show at the Milieu Galerie/Artspace in Bern, Switzerland are also present. Here is the statement from the gallery:
Influenced by 1960’s posters, music and psychedelia, Brandou’s new work takes a walk on the wild side and a more organic narrative ensues. The artist’s iconic flower motifs, skulls, bunnies and boxes transform into a kaleidoscope of stunning psychonautic imagery. Ornate gold leaf accents decorate mind-expanding dreamscapes where the ego merges into the id, fear is released and beauty resides. The exhibition will also include a rare series of limited-edition silkscreens on wood block based on vintage rock posters.

The exhibition will also feature 100 limited-edition silk screen show prints that will be available only at the gallery.” Then we have Melissa Forman’s second showing at the gallery as well with “Garden of Shadows”.
Both artists are extremely talented, and being able to see both of their shows in the same gallery is a must for those that are close.

Corey Helford gallery is releasing a new print from Luke Chueh. “Goya” comes from his last solo show at the gallery, “From Light Cometh Darkness” and is a remix of Francisco Goya’s “Saturn Devours His Son”. While I’m not the biggest fan of Luke’s work, I do enjoy this painting. The print is 12″ x 24″ on Arches infinity paper, signed and numbered in an edition of 50. The print can be bought with or without frame. The great thing about the frame, is that it is the exact one that Luke used for the original.
