Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present “Twenty Two”, a solo exhibition of new works by Los Angeles artist Korin Faught. For her first solo show in Los Angeles, Faught celebrates ingenues and double entendres through a series of oil on canvas paintings and drawings. Twenty two scenes reveal a world of stylish youth, sweet seduction and modern glamour. Faught’s signature neutral palette captures the subtle moods and elegance of her subjects: couples and twins.

Open to the public, the reception for “Twenty Two” will take place on Saturday, March 22 from 7 to 10pm, and the show will be on exhibit until April 19, 2008.

Her work has been exhibited at numerous galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, San Francisco and Seattle, including Merry Karnowsky Gallery, Copro Nason, Gallery Nucleus, The Shooting Gallery and Aidan Savoy Gallery.

Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present “Por Vida”, a solo exhibition of new works by much sought-after Los Angeles artist Sylvia Ji. For her first solo show in Los Angeles, Ji presents a series of acrylic-on-wood panel portraits that explore her fascination with morbid beauty. Known for painting alluring and mysterious women, Ji’s new body of work is a dark celebration of life, death and renewal. By incorporating symbols of death into her paintings, she transforms her subjects into powerful, seductive and dangerous temptresses. Ji’s style continues to evolve with the introduction of different color palettes, ornate decoration, and intricate illustration. Open to the public, the reception for “Por Vida” will take place on Saturday, February 23 from 7 to 10pm, and the show will be on exhibit until March 15, 2008.

Sylvia Ji was born in 1982, and raised in San Francisco, California, where she received her BFA at the Academy of Art University. Upon graduation, she relocated to Los Angeles in 2005 where she currently resides. Ji’s work encapsulates an alluring beauty that is both cutting edge and a nod to time-honored technique. Her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting and decaying beauty. Ji’s work has been featured in several gallery exhibitions including White Walls, Thinkspace, Lineage Gallery, BLVD Gallery, and Art Basel’s Art Fair Now. She has been profiled in numerous publications such as Juxtapoz, Trace, and Mesh Magazine. For more information about Sylvia Ji, please visit sylviaji.com.

Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present "Burning At Both Ends", a solo exhibition of new works by noted tattoo artists Henry Lewis and Regino Gonzales. Their first solo show with the gallery will feature a series of figurative oil paintings as well as collaborative pieces that fuse their tattoo-influenced images with fine art technique. On one end of the gallery, Lewis paints the world as he see it, drawing upon experiences and emotions of the past year that evoke timeless themes of inner turmoil, uncertainty, mortality, vulnerability, and hope. His portraits are a blend of historic artifacts, modern day images, icons of beauty, and supernatural creatures. And on the other end, Gonzales' paintings are a collection of loose narratives based upon personal experiences. Using crude metaphors, symbolism, dark humor, and personal icons, Gonzales' work takes on a new direction, elevating it from the boundaries of tattoo art. The opening reception for "Burning At Both Ends" will take place on Saturday, January 5 from 7 to 10pm and is open to the public. The exhibition will be on view until January 23, 2008.

Regino Gonzales grew up in Riverside, California and moved to New York where he graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2001. For the past twelve years he has worked as a tattoo artist as well as graphic designer, creating illustrations for Upper Playground, Atlantic records and Issili. Gonzales' work has been featured in Inked magazine, Tattoo Burst, Tattoo, and will be included in an upcoming tattoo book by Juxtapoz magazine. Gonzales has exhibited at numerous galleries including White Walls, 111 Minna, Red Letter 1, and Canvas. For more information about the artist, please visit, www.regnyc.com.

Born in Pasadena, California in 1977, Henry Lewis moved to San Francisco in 2000 to pursue a career in tattooing, illustration, and painting. Lewis has worked as a tattooist for the past eight years and is a featured artist at the world-renowned tattoo studio, Everlasting Tattoo. He has exhibited at 111 Minna Gallery, 5024SF, Hotel Biron, White Walls, The Shooting Gallery and his work was featured in a group show during the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present Hooker Safari: A Glamorous Jungle Pageant, a solo exhibition of new works by Los Angeles artist Natalia Fabia. This will be Fabia’s first solo show at the Gallery, and her most ambitious exhibition to date. Hooker Safari marks a new direction in the artist’s style and technique, while retaining the seductive and provocative imagery that she is known for. Fabia takes the viewer on an African expedition where glamorous women are the wildlife: a seductress and her panther prepare for the kill, a herd of girls relax in a savanna, and a glamazon perches in her tree. The show will feature twenty oil-on-panel paintings, numerous drawings and an exotic vine installation of entangled chandeliers, flowers, bugs, and glitter. Opening night will also include the debut of Hooker Medallions, limited-edition wearable works of art from Fabia’s jewelry line Hookerfeathers. Also, heightening the atmosphere of safari and celebration will be the appearance of “Charon Nogues and Her Beasts of Burden”, featuring ten Los Angeles models who will be dressed in a collection of custom, sexy animalesque costumes designed by stylist Charon Nogues. Open to the public, the reception for Hooker Safari will take place on Saturday, November 10 from 7 to 10pm, and the show will be on exhibit until December 3, 2007.

Natalia Fabia is of Polish descent and was raised in Southern California where she graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Inspired by light, color, punk rock music, hot chicks and sparkles, Fabia is fascinated with “hookers”, which fuels her paintings of sultry women. Her work has been featured in numerous gallery exhibitions including Thinkspace Gallery, M Modern and The Shooting Gallery. She has been featured in Angeleno, Juxtapoz, and New York Arts magazine as well as appearances on Miami Ink, Fox 11 News and Indie 103.1.

DAVID HOCHBAUM "To The Winds"

Corey Helford Gallery
presents new works by

DAVID HOCHBAUM
“To The Winds”

Opening Reception Saturday, September 15, 2007 from 7-10pm
On View September 15 - October 6, 2007

Corey Helford Gallery

Corey Helford Gallery is pleased to present “To The Winds” a continuation of “Fool’s Paradise”, first shown in New York in the spring of 2007. Exhibiting his first solo for Corey Helford Gallery, artist David Hochbaum explores the ideas of detachment and confusion in one’s home and familiar surroundings. Creating a narrative about human behavior, his work is an alchemic mixture of history, astronomy, sex and iconoclastic symbols. The characters, an extension of Hochbaum and those close to his life, are messengers, either lost or distracted from their course who search for their higher purpose, as they yearn for peace of mind and spirit. But these characters are not without hope and strength. They continue their mission to relay the message of love and the overcoming of doubt and fear. They listen, and they tell. Striving towards enlightenment, they stand atop the constricting cities carrying the burdens of the human condition, exposing the beauty and truths for all to see. The exhibition will feature a sculpture installation created from hundreds of ladders and faux birds, completing the theme of nomadic displacement. The reception is open to the public and will take place on Saturday, September 15 from 7 to 10pm. “To The Winds” will be on view until October 6, 2007.

Born in 1971, David Hochbaum was raised in suburban New City, New York. Feeling like an outsider, he connected with the energy and decadence of Manhattan. Hochbaum turned to art as a form of self-expression, and in 1991 attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. Upon graduation, he returned to New York where he currently resides in Manhattan. Hochbaum is known for his unique photo constructions ­— paintings built on photographs and images — which take on a sculptural quality. He has exhibited in numerous galleries worldwide, including McCaig-Welles Gallery, James Anthony Gallery, Strychnin Gallery, in Berlin and New York, and the Standard Hotel in Los Angeles, and his work has been included in several art fairs such as Scope and Bridge Art Fair.
