"LOST DAYS" - KORIN FAUGHT'S NEW ART EXHIBIT

"Corey Helford Gallery proudly welcomes the return of one of LA's favorites, artist Korin Faught and her gorgeously detailed paintings examining the female subject. Her new show, "Lost Days," will mark her fourth solo with the gallery. Faught's exhibit will open in Gallery 2 on Saturday, October 1st from 7-11pm, along with Martin Wittfooth and Hannah Yata in Gallery 1 and 3 respectively. Advance online previews can be requested at jch@coreyhelfordgallery.com. We look forward to sharing this very special exhibition with you."

ARTIST STATEMENT
"LOST DAYS" EXHIBITION

"With this new group of paintings, I am once again using multiple poses of the same model, thereby creating a 'twin effect', or what I would call a "meta portrait." Thus, my intention is to describe BOTH one moment and all moments - a place that is at once self-referential and omni-referential, which is what we are, have always been, and always will be.

You will discern figures wrapped in bedding, along with flowers, insects and ribbons - all on a flat landscape approaching weightlessness or oneiric rarefaction. Imagine that you've ventured out into a void that is a soft and inviting lake of grey brain matter with lacy edges. Jagged bits of painful memories protrude, promising blistering welts of regret that are ready to blossom into beautiful watery purple bruises. The subjects' poses appear as ritualistic, cleansing and edifying, which furthers my intention towards describing an omnipresent experience.

Blinding pinpoints of light stemming from my own experiences, feelings, and impressions. A body in torment and escape into the mind set ajar. Childbirth, migraines, fevers, bed rest, and photophobia. Tossing in bed, wracked with pain. Lost hours and days beyond time and inside one's mind. Dream Reification, where strange vistas open up and drift away..."

INFLUENCES:
John Singer Sargent and select other turn-of-the-century portrait painters.

NEW DANNY CAREY TEE-SHIRT

On this Autumnal Equinox, I am pleased to introduce DANNY CAREY'S new tee-shirt, entitled "PHEONISTIC CONTINUUM."

PHEONISTIC CONTINUUM

The esoteric geometry of "Pheonistic Continuum" hints at the ritualized activation of certain veves of Voudon Gnosticism. By employing the secrets of vudotronics (via ontic broadcasting and nightside presentations), the operator's magickcal circuitry is thereby able to receive outpourings of ultra-mauve radiations and impressions from beyond the hyper-spatial gateway of Daath, which is the physiological interface with the Zothyrian Format. This occult hyper-chemistry involving the science of amplified vudotronics is used to detect and investigate realms of abstract essences in the magickal imagination (i.e. Daathian gnosis.)

Inspired, in part, by the research and teachings of the highly controversial Michael Bertiaux concerning the dark mysteries of the "La Couleuvre Noire" papers and 'secret' techniques for developing magickal machines as described in the underground occult classic "The Voudon Gnostic Workbook", the tee's graphics suggest inter-dimensional "voltigeurs" who engage in traffic with the denizens beyond the pylon of Daath by employing a highly-energized "mirroir-fantastique." (Note: As a caveat to any would-be experimenters, we have added to the design a D.C. sigil using letters from the Voodoo alphabet, which should be mentally eliminated in the synthesis of the [E]Legba - Danbe veves.)

NATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY WARNING

With today being "NATIONAL CHEESEBURGER DAY", check out this beast of a burger that LaraLee ordered at the 89AGAVE CANTINA during a recent trip to Sedona, Arizona. The "MACHACA BURGER" is topped with grilled short rib, green chili sauce, goat cheese, roasted poblano pepper, avocado aioli, and is served with chili-dusted fries. (Goddamn I hope JACK doesn't try this!). National Cheeseburger Day aside, the heathen near-vegan (who ordered divorced-style enchiladas without cheese) posts this as a warning to others. Needless to say, the Machaca burger really packs a wallop - so much so that 10 minutes later your major concern won't be having paid $13.00 for a margarita...
