Opening Night Photos: Brandi Milne's My Heart Shall Not FearJuxtapoz // Friday, 02 Jul 2010
Brandi Milne promised her best and most personal show yet, and she fully delivered. The opening of My Heart Shall Not Fear, at Corey Helford unveiled some stunning new paintings on wood panel, followed by a string of eager fans.
For My Heart Shall Not Fear, Milne explores narratives about life, death and new awakenings. Her work embraces a brave new direction, juxtaposing her delicate signature imagery with more intense themes. And Milne’s fresh artistic voice skillfully weaves together a series of visual fables that are as playful as they are poignant.
