Seen: Clowns!

Corey Helford celebrated  a classic American icon with the opening of the Clowns! group show this past Saturday evening (11.15).  The impressive group of artists offered tremendously varied interpretations of the theme – many stayed fairly close to popular conceptions of clowns while others presented much more subdued and subtle interpretations.

While there were many excellent pieces, perhaps the most visually arresting was sculptor Colin Christian’s Freaky’ Deaky sculpture (above).  This piece follows the artist’s signature female head shape yet changes things up with a powerful snarl — great work.

While some have remarked that they weren’t moved by the theme, in my opinion the draw for this show is the tremendous talent assembled including some of LA’s brightest painters + in-demand UK artists who showed courtesy of Stolen Space Gallery.   Clowns! continues through November 29th.

Enjoy the opening pics.
