Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles just announced that they are moving to a new space, and they are saying goodbye to their Circa gallery with one of their most popular group exhibitions, “Art Collector Start Kit 3”. Opening this Saturday, the exhibit (previously covered here) annually showcases smaller works from both well established and new names in the New Contemporary scene. This year’s show is no less eclectic and presents 12″ x 12″ sized pieces from Brandi Milne, Hannah Yata, Hikari Shimoda (HF Vol. 29), Hirabayashi Takahiro, KiSung Koh, Korin Faught, Lori Nelson, Lu Cong, Naoto Hattori (HF Vol. 7 and 35), and Yoko d’Holbachie (HF Vol. 6 cover artist), among over 30 artists. Their works elaborate on their most current and individual themes, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect from them in the year ahead. For instance, New York based artist Hannah Yata presents one of her signature hybrid animals, a rabbit-fish, in a psychedelic and fetishistic interpretation of a “Druglord”. Japanese painter Hikari Shimoda offers a portrait of her big-eyed child subjects, which she continually adds nuanced and traditional textile-inspired motifs to.

“Art Collector Starter Kit 3” will be on view at Corey Helford Gallery’s Circa from July 25th through August 15th, 2015.
