“Haute Epoch” at Corey Helford Gallery – Los Angeles
Saturday, April 11, 2009 from 7 to 10pm
On View April 11 until April 28, 2009
Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present “Haute Epoch”, a solo exhibition of new works by highly-collected Los Angeles artist Sylvia Ji. Returning to Corey Helford for her second solo show, Ji continues her evolution in the mastery of capturing the dark side of the beautiful and the sublime. For “Haute Epoch” her work reaches majestic heights as her macabre catrinas intermingle with exotic empresses, taking on a regal elegance. Ji’s imagery is a visual elixir of life and death, combining sacred symbolism with mystical glamour and opulence. Influenced by historical costumery, Ji incorporates Baroque detailing such as luxurious tapestries, ornamental feathers, and gold leafing into her work for a more elaborate and decorative effect. Opening night will include a video presentation by filmmaker Phill Schwartz creating a stunning sensory exploration of Ji’s work.
