Juxtapoz // Friday, March 21, 2014
This past weekend we stopped by Corey Helford Gallery for the opening reception of their latest group exhibit “Pop-Eyeconic.” Looking to explore the iconic characters who define popular artistic symbolism, we have asked an ambitious and diverse group of artists - from street to surreal to New Classicist - to provide one new work each, featuring their choice of POP ICONS that have special meaning to them, but rendering the icons in each artist’s own particular style and placing them in situations relevant to that artist’s usual subject matter.

Colin Christian works full time on his original sculptures, finding inspiration in old sci-fi movies, pinup girl/supermodels, anime, ambient electronic music and H.P. Lovecraft. In 2004 he started using silicone in his sculptures, a difficult material to use but one that helps him achieve his goal of true cartoon realism, a line drawing made flesh. He is not looking to create every imperfection and flaw, but to take the exaggerations and perfections of cartoons and make them into a realistic 3D form.

On July 7, 2012, London-born Colin Christian will open Hello, Pretty Pretty, his first solo exhibition with Corey Helford Gallery. The exhibition will feature 12 new works that pay tribute to the Black Queen of Sogo from the 1968 cult film Barbarella. His large-scale sculptures capture beauty in many forms from futuristic portraits of Cleopatra and Hello Kitty to ultra-mod Orbit Chairs made from fiberglass, steel and faux fur.
