David Hochbaum x Corey Helford Gallery
This February Corey Helford Gallery presents â€œYou Are Not Falling, You Are Floatingâ€, an immersion into the surreal state of consciousness between being awake and asleep and the secrets about ourselves, which are revealed in our dreams, by New York artist David Hochbaum. For his second solo exhibition at the gallery, Hochbaum creates a total environment through a stunning mixed media display of paintings, photography, sculptures and an installation.
Open to the public, the reception for â€œYou Are Not Falling, You Are Floatingâ€ will take place on Saturday, February 13 from 7 to 10pm.
Born in 1972, David Hochbaum was raised in suburban New City, New York. Feeling like an outsider, he connected with the energy and decadence of Manhattan. Hochbaum turned to art as a form of self-expression, and in 1990 attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. Upon graduation, he returned to New York where he currently resides in Manhattan. Hochbaum is known for his unique photo constructions â€” paintings built on photographs and images â€” which take on a sculptural quality. He has exhibited in numerous galleries worldwide, including McCaig-Welles Gallery and Strychnin Gallery in Berlin, London and New York. His works have been exhibited in Germany, France, Sweden, London, Italy, Belgium, Chile and the United States. Hochbaumâ€™s work has been included in several art fairs such as Scope, Bridge Art Fair, Art 21 in Cologne and Fusion Five in Cannes.
Located in the Culver City Art District, Corey Helford Gallery was established in April 2006 by Jan Corey Helford and her husband, television producer and creator, Bruce Helford (The Drew Carey Show, George Lopez, The Oblongs). Passionate art collectors, the Helfords are producers on the art documentary The Treasures of Long Gone John and have partnered to open their first gallery. Corey Helford Gallery presents a wide range of artists, from members of the new fine art movement, such as Gary Baseman, Andrew Brandou, Coop, Natalia Fabia, Korin Faught, Sylvia Ji, Eric Joyner, and award-winning photographer Chris Anthony, to early Modernist William S. Schwartz. Notable shows include â€œCharity By Numbersâ€, which was co-curated by Gary Baseman and featured an unprecedented lineup of artists including Mark Ryden, Marion Peck, Shepard Fairey, Todd and Kathy Schorr, Camille Rose Garcia, and Michael Hussar. Corey Helford Gallery presents new exhibitions approximately every four weeks.
