Vertigo: A Decade of Hunting Nightmares
Corey Helford Gallery is proud to open 2011 with “Vertigo: A Decade of Hunting Nightmares” by artist Alex Pardee. In his first solo at Corey Helford Gallery, the artist unveils the art of capturing nightmares with a collection of thirteen acrylic-on-cradled wood panel paintings, which are physical representations of darkly intense dream-state visions in the unique Pardee style.
Also on display throughout the gallery will be a series of artifacts and evidence from the famous nightmare hunter’s archive, including the actual music box he used to exorcise nightmares from patients, as well as an eight-foot taxidermy monster from Verti’s very first nightmare hunt.
The reception for “Vertigo” is open to the public and will take place on Saturday, January 8th 2011 from 7PM to 10PM. The show will be on view until January 26th 2011.
