Photos: "These Predicaments" by David Stoupakis

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 23 Dec 2008

These Predicaments by pop surrealist David Stoupakis recently opened at Los Angeles' Corey Helford Gallery.

For his second solo exhibition at the Gallery, Stoupakis parlays his talent for the supernatural and macabre into dramatic narratives that reveal symbolic turning points and unexpected dilemmas. C'mon, getting stuck in a house definitely counts as an unexpected dilemma, no?

A delicate balance of childhood innocence and haunting imagery, the series of oil-on-panel paintings and graphite drawings recounts grim fairytales of the decadent and demure.

This new series marks a new direction for the artist, as Stoupakis employs a brighter color palette than before and unveiled his largest piece to date at the exhibition, which attracted a wealth of fans to its reception.
