Adrian Cox debuts his new series of oil paintings on Feb. 24-Mar. 31 in his first solo show “Terra Incognita” at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles.

“I’ve continued to expand on the mythological narrative of the Border Creatures, a race of hybrid beings that populate my work. The paintings in this show chronicle a time of conflict in the lives of Border Creatures. These characters are forced to adapt in order to survive the spectral forces threatening to destroy them and their forested home, the Borderlands. These new works examine the interconnectedness between human identity and nature, and ultimately serve as a celebration of otherness.”

-Adrian Cox

In one of Cox’s new pieces, titled “Veiled Healer with Herbal Remedy” (pictured above), the parasol carries a prophetic glimpse of the events that will unfold through the exhibition, and the journey that the Veiled Healer will have to take in to save the Border Creatures from the threat of the Specters (who are seen lighting fires in the background of this painting). The herbs in Veiled Healer’s bowl are actual medicinal herbs (chamomile, comfrey, lemon balm, calendula, and St. John’s wort), basically a Border Creature recipe for self-care.
