Carlos Ramos- June 28th at Corey Helford
(Big Elephants) (Big shark Sea Lion)
Carlos Ramos will be exhibiting his recent collection of works, Titled "Natural History Museum part 1" at the Corey Helford Gallery- Opening exhibition June 28th, this Saturday night from
7 to 10 pm. Show is up and running till July 16th.
His big elephants, sunsets and strong colors makes me think of walking in to a Dali-Disney film.- if such a flim existed, i think it would look something like his paintings.
Juxtapoz says, " A series of twenty-four large-scale paintings based on classic grand dioramas and a special installation of skeletal structures will transform the gallery into an epicenter of flora and fauna.
The concept of the exhibition is based on Ramos’ childhood fascination with natural history museums and the “authoritative” impression they made on him growing up. Developing a show around a cohesive theme as well as expanding the size and scale of his work mark an exciting new direction for the artist, which has allowed him to explore environments and characters more freely than in the past. "
Thanks Juxtapoz, and Corey Helford gallery!
