On Saturday, September 24, Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present new works by internationally-collected California artist Nataly (Kukula) Abramovitch. Digital artist Natalie Shau will be featured in the loft gallery.
Following the success of her 2009 sold-out exhibition “Immortal Artifacts,” Kukula returns to Corey Helford for her second solo show at the gallery entitled “Lonely Opulent Things.” Featuring twelve new paintings, including Kukula’s largest works to date, and a limited-edition Jacquard tapestry, “Lonely Opulent Things” celebrates the florid ambiance of the French aristocracy. Drawing inspiration from her recent sojourn to the Palace of Versailles, the concept for Kukula’s new show revolves around “the beauty of objects and how we make them parts of ourselves. At the same time, as we collect more and more beautiful things, we end up isolating ourselves behind walls of decadence.”
For the exhibition, Kukula’s process began with a sketch of the painting “Broken Limoges.” A periwinkle blue-haired nymph sits perched on her knees atop a marble floor. Surrounded by exquisite Limoges porcelain objects, the delicate girl becomes an object herself. Infusing her imagery with the fanciful stylings from France’s Rococo period, Kukula examines the idea of detaching from the ugliness of reality in “Lonely Opulent Things.” Elaborate surroundings such as lush floral embellishments, ornate pedestals, and classical cherubs provide the ideal escape from the rest of the world. “Flourishes are often dismissed as ‘mere’ decorations without substance,” Kukula explains “but for me they are the substance that make life bearable.”
The loft gallery will feature “Time Stood Still,” an exhibition of eight new digital paintings by Lithuanian artist Natalie Shau. Her surrealistic portraits achieve a dark elegance, combining elements from human emotions to fashion and fairytales, and her color palette of calming pastels and smoky grays creates an equally dreamy atmosphere. Shau notes “usually all beautiful moments and things in life do not last long, so I try to capture beauty in stillness.”
Open to the public, the reception for “Lonely Opulent Things” and “Time Stood Still” will take place on Saturday, September 24 from 7 to 10pm, and the exhibition will be on view until October 15, 2011.

Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to announce the launch of its fall exhibition schedule with the opening of new solo shows from Korin Faught and Joey Remmers on Saturday, September 3, 2011.
Since 2006, Los Angeles artist Korin Faught has exhibited with Corey Helford Gallery, and this September she will unveil her new solo exhibition entitled “Voices of the Lake.” Infusing her signature portraits of multiples with a modern style and timeless beauty, Faught’s work captures a composed elegance within each pool of reflection. Her feminine narratives feature a refined palette that spans from pale whites to dark neutrals, revealing layers of subtle textures and hidden details in between. Inspired by her own underwater photography, Korin brings her paintings above water, aligning herself with Victorian themes and painters from The Romantic era who sought to capture such classical values as chivalry and female fragility. Seen submerged or simply standing in shallow water, Faught’s subjects possess that elusive quality that leave one wondering who are the “Voices of the Lake?”
Accompanying Faught’s  “Voices of the Lake,” the upstairs gallery will feature new works by artist Joey Remmers entitled, “Sheeps Clothing.” Returning to Corey Helford for his second solo exhibition, Remmers transforms elements from the psychological crime studies of Lt. Col. Dave Grossman into tranquil oil-on-panel tableaus that expose a darker side. Remmers notes, “I’ve always liked the idea and feel of peaceful, serene landscapes but laced with sinister, underlying themes.” His muted palette of desaturated tones is layered with splashes of vibrant hues, and for the exhibition, Remmers incorporates his profession as a tattoo artist into his paintings, adding ink-inspired embellishments throughout.
The opening receptions for “Voices of the Lake” and “Sheeps Clothing” take place on Saturday, September 3, 2011 at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is free and open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through September 21, 2011.

David Stoupakis and Tom Bagshaw


Dates:
Sat Aug 06, 2011 19:00 - Mon Aug 29, 2011

Location:
Culver City, California
United States of America

August opens at Corey Helford Gallery with standout double solo exhibitions by New York painter David Stoupakis and UK digital artist Tom Bagshaw.
Returning to the gallery for his third solo exhibition entitled “Walking Within These Shadows”, Stoupakis reveals a more personal side to his work — exploring life, death and the unknown. Stoupakis is internationally recognized for his clever narratives and haunting imagery that portray the darker side of childhood innocence and fairytales. However, his new body of work adopts a more serious tone, departing from the playful themes he is known for. For the show, Stoupakis spent the past year reflecting on his life experiences, infusing his work with a darker color palette as well as more mature themes. Of the seven new oil-on-panel paintings showcased in the exhibition, Stoupakis notes “Peddlers of Death” as the highlight, describing the painting as “the boundary between Earth and the unknown.”

Exhibiting alongside Stoupakis in the main gallery, UK artist Tom Bagshaw will have new works inspired by stories, myths and legends from around the globe on view entitled “Beautiful Imperfections”. Bagshaw notes, “In my first show, I had focused purely on Japanese Yokai. I wanted to continue with that exploration of folklore, ghosts and mythology, but on a much broader scale.” Continuing with his aesthetic he describes as “darker elements combined with an edge of humor or playfulness,” Bagshaw combines realistic portraiture and figurative work with imaginative back-stories. “‘There’s Always One’ is the centre piece for the show and is primarily my interpretation of the adage you can’t take it with you.”
The opening reception takes place on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is free and open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through August 27, 2011.
