Brandi Milne Solo show at Corey Helford Gallery
For "My Heart Shall Not Fear", Milne explores narratives about life, death and new awakenings. Her work embraces a brave new direction, juxtaposing her delicate signature imagery with more intense themes. And Milne's fresh artistic voice skillfully weaves together a series of visual fables that are as playful as they are poignant. Her first solo exhibition in over a year, Milne has been diligently working from her Huntington Beach studio in preparation for the show, and she explains, "I've never been more excited about a series of work than I am with this one. Viewers can expect much warmth and intrigue as I rediscover the sugar-coated, austere world that swells and flows from inside my head.
'My Heart Shall Not Fear' is a story of life and loss as I continue my personal exploration." For the exhibition, Milne's palette surveys new territories as well, presenting rich hues of burnt oranges and seafoam greens alongside deep crimson reds. Skulls, black cats, birds and horses populate Milne's whimsical narratives as they encounter secret adventures that ultimately lead to the path of rediscovery. Joining Milne in the loft, will be limited-edition works by Lithuanian artist Natalie Shau. Her stunning digital renderings bloom with gothic charm and fantastical symbolism.
Opening reception: June 26th at Corey Helford Gallery.
