David Stoupakis and Tom Bagshaw at Corey Helford Gallery
Another great show opening this weekend in
Culver City and one Im proud to annouce is the first USA solo exhibition of Tom Bagshaw. I have been exhibiting Tom's work in London for awhile now and its so nice to see the Californian art scene show confidence in his work.
Corey Helford presents a double solo exhibitions by New York painter David Stoupakis and UK digital artist Tom Bagshaw.
Exhibiting alongside Stoupakis in the main gallery, UK artist Tom Bagshaw will have new works inspired by stories, myths and legends from around the globe on view entitled “Beautiful Imperfections”. Bagshaw notes, “In my first show, I had focused purely on Japanese Yokai. I wanted to continue with that exploration of folklore, ghosts and mythology, but on a much broader scale.” Continuing with his aesthetic he describes as “darker elements combined with an edge of humor or playfulness,” Bagshaw combines realistic portraiture and figurative work with imaginative back-stories. “‘There’s Always One’ is the centre piece for the show and is primarily my interpretation of the adage you can’t take it with you.”
