Corey Helford Gallery – “Tracking The Wounded”

Posted on 19 January 2009

Corey Helford Gallery presents: “Tracking The Wounded”, a solo exhibition of new works by Joey Remmers. For his first solo show at the gallery, Remmers creates a series of compelling visual narratives, many are adaptations from his favorite novels and short stories. Inspired by authors from Steven King and Chuck Palahniuk to Michael Chabon and Dean Koontz, Remmers employs the paintbrush, as an author would the pen, to create timeless moments and intimate snapshots. Remmers’ color palette is more muted than before, and the oil and mixed media works highlight the grain of his birch panels. Upstairs in the loft space, guest artist Devin Crane will unveil a new series of paintings entitled, “Love & Tears”. A DreamWorks animator, Crane skillfully illustrates the emotional pain of relationships that have gone sour as well as the transformation of finding true love. The reception for “Tracking The Wounded” and “Love & Tears” take place on Saturday, January 24. Open to the public, both exhibitions will be on view until February 14, 2009.Corey Helford Gallery
