Los Angeles: David Stoupakis painting exhibition


Pop surrealist David Stoupakis has a solo exhibition of his phantasmagoric paintings opening tomorrow, December 13, at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California. Corey Helford Gallery has invited BB readers to preview the entire exhibition, titled "These Predicaments," at the link below. Seen above, "Soup" (oil on canvas, 36" x 72"). I wish I could see these gorgeous paintings in person! From the show description:

For his second solo exhibition at the Gallery, Stoupakis parlays his talent for the supernatural and macabre into dramatic narratives that reveal symbolic turning points and unexpected dilemmas. A delicate balance of childhood innocence and haunting imagery, the series of oil-on-panel paintings and graphite drawings recounts grim fairytales of the decadent and demure. Marking a new direction for the artist, Stoupakis employs a brighter color palette than before and will unveil his largest piece to date for the exhibition. The reception for "These Predicaments" takes place on Saturday, December 13, and the evening will include music scored by composer Geoff Gersh. Open to the public, the exhibition will be on view until
December 31, 2008.
