Our good friend, past exhibiting FIFTY24SF gallery artist, often-collaborator, and #1 Zerofriend Alex Pardee opens a big solo show, Vertigo, at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, California this Saturday, January 8th. There has been quite a buzz around the show over the past few months as Alex has hunkered down in the East Bay in preparation.
What we do know: this is Alex’ first show working with acrylics, which should result in some good finishes. And we know the show is “inspired by a famous big game hunter from Kenya named Caleb ‘Verti’ Parker.” Alex also has said, “my approach was more mathematical than organic. For this exhibition, I wanted all of the paintings to be very different in subject matter, which I knew would be challenging if I didn’t discipline myself.”
Alex gave an exclusive to Juxtapoz, which you can read here.
