On Saturday, June 9, Corey Helford Gallery marks the arrival of summer with “Motion: The Art of Movement.”
For the group exhibition, more than twenty five artists from the New Contemporary Art Scene created a wide range of works depicting people in motion, design in motion, and nature in motion. Each piece captures a different aspect of movement, creating an intensely vital and energized multi-artist exploration.
Ray Caesar’s elegant and haunting work takes a delightful direction in “Turning Point,” his exquisite digital rendering of a woman with her parasol strolling amidst flowers in full bloom. Her profile echoes with each turn of her delicate figure. Alternately, Los Angeles artist Cleon Peterson paints a swarm of deviance in “The Mess.” Known for his “anxiety-ridden dystopias where corruption and injustice plague the social order,” Peterson’s desperate characters struggle for power and control over their environment in a scene loaded with sex, drugs and violence. Internationally-renowned UK street artist HUSH brings an urban edge to the exhibition with his piece “Dark Dancer,” in which a female figure appears still, yet her hair and clothing are adorned with chaos and flux.
“Motion” features new works by:
Benjamin Bryce Kelley
Josh Agle (SHAG)
Stella Im Hultberg
The opening reception for “Motion: The Art of Movement” takes place Saturday, June 9 at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through June 30, 2012.
