On July 10th 2010, Los Angeles based artist Natalia Fabia joins Corey Helford Gallery for her third - and most ambitious - solo exhibition to date, “Fashionable Aftertaste Without End”. The opening reception takes place on July 10th from 8PM until 11PM.
“Fashionable Aftertaste Without End” features twelve oil paintings that have been in development over the past year, and the exhibition will showcase the debut of Fabia’s first full nude painting, a stunning fusion of male desires and Kaiju toys. “Kawaii transforms everyday objects into supreme cuteness”, explains Fabia. “It is everything I find irresistible and cute, yet can’t explain why. It is a concept I totally fell in love with and validates my crazy random obsessions.”
Also on display will be a spectacular six-foot chandelier designed by Fabia, her visionary monument to Japanese pop culture. One hundred handcrafted figurines, each designed and initialed by the artist, will be suspended from the opulent fuchsia sculptural installation, along with thousands of Swarovski crystals, sparkling pink chain and laser-cut objets d’art. Ten different Kawaii-inspired designs make up the collection of limited-edition figurines and many of them are featured in Fabia’s new painting series.
