Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present “From Light Cometh Darkness”, the highly-anticipated exhibition of new works by Los Angeles artist Luke Chueh. Capturing Chueh’s dark humor, his first solo show at the Gallery will feature paintings and drawings that are as sweet as they are vicious. Adorable bears, monkeys and rabbits find themselves in disturbing and ironic narratives that playfully weave light and dark elements. For “From Light Cometh Darkness”, Chueh pushes himself technically, stylistically and narratively to produce some of his most explorative paintings to date, including the sequel to his painting “Bear In Mind”, the humorously introspective self portrait, “My Ball & Chain”, and a ‘remix’ of the Francisco Goya masterpiece, “Saturn Devours His Son”. Upstairs in the loft, Thomas Han will unveil a new series of illustrative works. Open to the public, the reception for “From Light Cometh Darkness” will take place on Friday, March 20 from 7 to 10pm, and the show will be on view until April 10, 2009. The gallery will be open on Sundays for this special exhibition.
