Los Angeles artist Van Arno joins Corey Helford Gallery for his solo show entitled “A Change of Skin”. Larger and more ambitious than before, “A Change of Skin” marks a new direction for the artist as Arno introduces multiple characters and a looser, more gestural format to his work. The exhibition will also feature 100 limited-edition silk screen show prints that will be available only at the gallery.
In the loft, guest artist Melissa Forman unveils “Garden of Shadows”, her second series of works at Corey Helford Gallery. Inspired by ancient medicine, Forman’s dark yet delicate paintings study the Four Humours, a medieval method of diagnosing imbalances in patients. Each humour is visually illustrated combining its unique properties such as color, mood, temperament, disposition, and plants.
Open to the public, the reception for “A Change of Skin” and “Garden of Shadows” takes place on Saturday, October 3 from 7PM until 10PM, and the show will be on view until October 24, 2009.
