On Saturday, December 2, Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) will proudly unveil a mini solo exhibition, featuring new works from Relm.
Through nature, distinctive features and intriguing use of hair, Relm, a self-taught NYC-based oil painter, is able to create a unique world of magical beings through her eyes. For her new show, entitled “Peculiar Tales”.
“I incorporate creatures, plants, and all kinds of life through the use of patterns and textures into the hair of my girls. My goals are to show the powerful relationship between humans and nature, whether it be good or bad. All the while simultaneously creating a new story with each piece. It’s the equivalent of writing a fairy tale through imagery. Each piece is individually telling and indicative of what the subject has experienced all the while remaining seductive in their physical beauty. My pieces have always had some form of a twist, I want to continue to push those boundaries through the use of my surroundings. My concepts will change as I grow and I will change as an artist with it, but the need to share a story through my work will always remain the same.”
