Opening: Brandi Milne ‘Before I Hide Away’ @ Corey Helford Gallery Los Angeles August 11th

Brandi Milne Corey Helford Gallery Los Angeles Culver City Washington Before I Hide Away solo show exhibition august 11th 2012

From the release: One of LA’s favorite artists, Brandi Milne, returns to Corey Helford Gallery on Saturday, August 11th, after a two-year working sabbatical to reveal her long-awaited exhibition of new paintings, “Before I Hide Away.”

Moving away from the ink outlining of her characters and into a softer, more spontaneous blending of colors and figures, Brandi notes, “My aesthetic for this show is a little different than previous shows. This body of work is a literal description of letting go of control, emotionally and artistically. I’ve left each and every painting to be guided by my truest emotion at the time of working on it.”

About the artist:
Southern California artist Brandi Milne was born and raised in Anaheim. She grew up happily, surrounded by a wealth of inspiration as a child, taking pleasure in classic cartoons, crayons and coloring books, Sid and Marty Kroft creations, toys, candies and the kitschy fabrics and notions of the times.

Self-taught and emotionally driven, Milne’s work speaks of love, loss, pain and heartbreak in the first person. She decorates it oddly with a wink of humor and a delicious candied-coated finish – a combination that can be considered highly addictive to viewers around the world. Milne’s work is celebrated and supported in fine art galleries across the US, and has been featured in both written and online publications such as Hi Fructose Magazine, Babyboss Magazine and Juxtapoz. Working with Baby Tattoo Books, Milne published her first book “So Good For Little Bunnies” in 2008, and in 2013, she will be releasing her first art book entitled “Frohlich.”
