Tanya Schultz creates vibrant, immersive installation art under the moniker Pip & Pop. This month, the artist unveils her U.S. debut exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. “Here Comes Sunshines” kicks off on Jan. 13 and runs through Feb. 17. Pip & Pop was prominently featured back in Hi-Fructose Vol. 36, in a multi-page feature story.
Next month, painter Alex Gross returns with his first show in a decade in Los Angeles, where he lives and works. For most, “Antisocial Network” may conjure images of handheld devices and laptop screens, yet this show takes a broader approach to the term. Smartphones, VR headsets, corporate branding, and internal preoccupation all offer a different take on what the artist intends with this new collection at Corey Helford Gallery. The show kicks off Feb. 25 and lasts through March 25. Gross was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
London based artist Nathan James uses different approaches each time he has a new idea to develop. This “lack” of a signature style makes his art unpredictable, but he might be converging into one thing. Nathan James will soon make his US solo debut at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles with “Dark Matter”, featuring his “Creepshow” series that we featured here on our blog, and introducing a new series that he calls “Faceless”. We sat down with him to talk more about the inspiration behind his upcoming show.
When NASA published some new and sharp images of Pluto in the beginning of the year, a dreamland of puzzling patterns was revealed. It was a gift for human imagination. How life would be in Pluto or in other worlds is the inspiration for Corey Helford Gallery’s first group show in their new Los Angeles space, “Between Worlds” (full disclosure: the show is curated by our Online Editor, Caro). Opening tomorrow, the exhibition presents 30 international contemporary artists’ visions of the fantasy of planets and lands yet to be explored.
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), Yoh Nagao, and Yoko d’Holbachie (HF Vol. 6 cover artist), among over 30 artists.
This Saturday, CHG Circa kicks off 2015 with a group show that celebrates, in essence, the dream of starting anew in “Freaks and Americana.” The show welcomes newcoming artists to the gallery like Carol Liu alongside regulars Brandi Milne, Shag, Ron English, Tom Bagshaw, Yosuke Ueno, and Melissa Forman, featured here. Their pieces edge on the verge of odd, but also have the classic innocence of vintage circuses and their personalities. Check out our preview after the jump!
