Corey Helford Gallery opens 2009 with three fresh voices from the new fine art movement. The main gallery will feature James Naccarato’s “The Other Side of Madness” and new works by pop surrealist Erik Alos, entitled “Inflexus Lumen”. Following his 2007 exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery, James Naccarato reintroduces his world of meditating Buddhas, playful creatures and lost wonderers locked in the embrace of the sorrowful life and duality of all things. His handmade panels explore man’s arrogant, destructive relationship with nature and the environment while softened with dreamlike imagery of trees, water, birds and flowers. The opposite side of the gallery will feature Erik Alos’ acrylic-on-panel works that blend iconic pop culture references with figurative narratives. Alos’ eclectic cast of characters showcases blue frogs, floating Gumbys, ominous skulls and delicate waifs as they populate desert skies and serene landscapes. Upstairs in the loft space, guest artist Lauren Bergman unveils her highly-anticipated exhibition “Calhalla: Dreams of Future Passed”. A study of “California dreaming”, her vibrant watercolor and acrylic works pair mid-century modern architecture with pin-up goddesses, “beckoning the viewer to come dwell in their sunny, modern Garden of Eden.” The reception is open to the public and will take place on Saturday, January 3, and the exhibition will be on view until January 21, 2009.

James Naccarato
James Naccarato was born in Kingston, New York and raised in California. At a young age, he took a strong interest in 16th and 17th Century classical painting, cubism, and surrealism. Growing up, Naccarato was inspired by California culture and identified with street art, comics, and various underground art movements. He attended the Laguna College of Art and Design where he studied Fine Art and Illustration and developed his signature style of painting. Naccarato is known for his colorful and playful creatures who often have a fictional quality to them, and at the same time feel very natural, organic and possibly preternatural -- perhaps even “real.” The artist lives in Long Beach with his wife and three children, and his work has been featured in numerous national exhibitions at galleries including CoproNason, Limited Addiction Gallery, Track 16, M Modern, and Lineage Gallery.

Erik Alos
Erik Alos was born and raised in Southern California. A self-taught artist, Alos began his creative endeavors at a young age and discovered his love for graffiti and painting during his teens. He successfully parlayed his talent from the streets to the canvas, becoming a notable emerging talent in Los Angeles’ burgeoning art scene. Influenced by Raphael Sanzio, Francisco Goya, Salvador Dali, Robert Williams, Mark Ryden and Ron English, Alos continues to push the boundaries of his narratives creating powerful snapshots of a new reality. Alos’ work has been featured in group shows at CoproNason, Gallery 1988 and Thinkspace Gallery.

Lauren Bergman
Lauren Bergman grew up in Washington, D.C., before relocating to Manhattan in 1987 to study painting and design at Parson’s School of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Her career in the Arts began at a young age, enrolling in art courses at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Bergman’s exceptional talents and mature narratives quickly landed her gallery exhibitions in Washington, D.C., exhibiting among renowned American realists, including Burton Silverman and Sondra Freckelton. Lauren Bergman is now regarded as a preeminent female contemporary artist emerging in the 21st Century, respected for her contributions to feminist-inspired art. Bergman’s solo exhibitions include “New Works” at O.K. Harris Gallery, and “American Dream” at Makor Gallery, and she has been featured in group shows at Carl Hammer Gallery and Claire Oliver Fine Art. Her work has been published in The New York Times, Xlr8r, Boing Boing, Juxtapoz, Absolute Arts, Glasstire, Format Magazine, Alarm Magazine, ACED Magazine and Art MoCo.

Located in the Culver City Art District, Corey Helford Gallery was established in April 2006 by Jan Corey Helford and her husband, television producer and creator, Bruce Helford (The Drew Carey Show, George Lopez, The Oblongs). Passionate art collectors, the Helfords are producers on the art documentary The Treasures of Long Gone John and have partnered to open their first gallery. Corey Helford Gallery presents a wide range of artists, from members of the new fine art movement, such as Andrew Brandou, Natalia Fabia, Korin Faught, Eric Joyner, Brandi Milne, David Stoupakis, and award-winning photographer Chris Anthony, to early Modernist William S. Schwartz. Notable shows include “Charity By Numbers”, which was co-curated by Gary Baseman and featured an unprecedented lineup of artists including Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Shepard Fairey, Todd and Kathy Schorr, Camille Rose Garcia, and Michael Hussar. Corey Helford Gallery presents new exhibitions approximately every four weeks.
