"Joey Remmers: Tracking The Wounded"
2009-01-24 until 2009-02-14
Corey Helford Gallery
Culver City, CA, USA United States of America

Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present “Tracking The Wounded”, a solo exhibition of new works by Joey Remmers. For his first solo show at the gallery, Remmers creates a series of compelling visual narratives, many are adaptations from his favorite novels and short stories. Inspired by authors from Steven King and Chuck Palahniuk to Michael Chabon and Dean Koontz, Remmers employs the paintbrush, as an author would the pen, to create timeless moments and intimate snapshots. Remmers’ color palette is more muted than before, and the oil and mixed media works highlight the grain of his birch panels. Upstairs in the loft space, guest artist Devin Crane will unveil a new series of paintings entitled, “Love & Tears”. A DreamWorks animator, Crane skillfully illustrates the emotional pain of relationships that have gone sour as well as the transformation of finding true love. The reception for “Tracking The Wounded” and “Love & Tears” take place on Saturday, January 24. Open to the public, both exhibitions will be on view until February 14, 2009.

Joey Remmers was born and raised in Southern California. His interest in art began at an early age, prompting him to find creative outlets for his innate talent. At 19 years old, he began tattooing, which became both his profession and artistic medium for the next ten years. Following his success as a nationally recognized tattoo artist, his focus turned to illustration and painting, exhibiting at galleries including CoproNason, M Modern, Fuse Gallery, and Thinkspace Gallery. Remmers’ work has been featured in Stretching Canvas and Savage Magazine, and he is currently collaborating with Fender Guitars on a custom product series.

Growing up in Southern California, the epicenter for all things Disney, Crane was inspired by the film Peter Pan, which sparked his interest in animated caricatures.

Crane concurrently developed successful careers in animation and painting, worker as a lead animator at DreamWorks on numerous films including Kung Fu Panda, Shrek 2 &3 and Iron Giant, and exhibiting in group shows such as Gallery 1988’s “Crazy For Cult” and “I Am 8 Bit” exhibitions.
