Opening Tonight: Alex Pardees' “Vertigo: A Decade of Hunting Nightmares” @ Corey Helford 1/8/2011

Corey Helford Gallery is proud to open 2011 with “Vertigo: A Decade of Hunting Nightmares”, by Alex Pardee... which is his most ambitious art exhibition to date. In his first solo at Corey Helford Gallery, Alex is set to unveil the art of capturing nightmares with a collection of thirteen acrylic-on-cradled wood panel paintings, which are physical representations of darkly intense dream-state visions in the unique Pardee style.

Each painting is accompanied by a framed document chronicling the nightmare’s history, as related by world-famous nightmare hunter, Verti Parker, who inspired Pardee to create the exhibition. Also on display throughout the gallery will be a series of artifacts and evidence from the famous nightmare hunter’s archive, including the actual music box he used to exorcise nightmares from patients, as well as an eight-foot taxidermy monster from Verti’s very first nightmare hunt. The reception for “Vertigo” is open to the public and will take place on Saturday, January 8 from 7 to 10pm. The show will be on view until January 26, 2011.
