ON VIEW. April 18 – May 23, 2020. COREY HELFORD GALLERY. 571 S. Anderson St. Los Angeles, CA 90033. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 12pm – 6pm. (310) 287-2340
Downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery is proud to announce a solo show with Polish contemporary artist Ewa Pro?czuk-Kuziak, entitled Happiness is Easy, premiering April 18th.
Pro?czuk-Kuziak’s oil paintings are a combination of still life, nature and fantasy. She creates rainbow-colored visions of animals that are made of materials, as if woven out of thread and decorative fabrics. Building on contrast, they are full of life, energy, and fantasy, always idealized in their complicated nature and continuous transformation. In her works, Ewa uses intensely saturated colors, which illustrate the vibrancy of the world her characters inhabit.
Happiness is Easy is a continuation of Pro?czuk-Kuziak’s True Colors show and is composed of 17 new oil paintings depicting short stories and reality snapshots which all have one thing in common – happiness. Pro?czuk-Kuziak shares, “With time, I saw that True Colors was all about hope: hope for luck, and inner peace. The show attempted to communicate, that even for misfortune, life goes on, that a night is followed by a day, and the sun comes out after every storm. The newest series of my works, now, describe happiness and finding it in perverse ways. Happiness is a very subjective concept and on the individual level, is often extremely difficult to reach despite being the most important and crucial need for all mankind. People can try to reach it for all their lives and find it in the most unexpected or strange places, situations, people, or moments.”
Please note: In order to keep our family of artists, collectors and staff safe, and in compliance with the COVID-19 statewide mandate, the physical gallery will remain closed until further notice. Previews for our three shows premiering April 18th are available by request by emailing [email protected] We are grateful for your patience and support while we stick together and power through this.
