Downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) is proud to announce their next major solo show, entitled Future Seasons, featuring new works from London-based award-winning artist duo Kai & Sunny.
Debuting on May 14th in Gallery 2, this new body of work from Kai & Sunny showcases their uniquely distinguishable compositions of acrylic paintings on linen canvas and archival ballpoint pen drawings on paper. The works are created by hand building thin intricate lines methodically upon each other. Featuring 17 original pieces, Future Seasons marks Kai & Sunny’s third solo at CHG (following 2020’s The Great Curve and 2019’s In The Drift) and is the duo’s most ambitious exhibition to date with the largest canvas measuring 79” x118”.
Regarding their upcoming show, Kai & Sunny share, “Future Seasons explores the changing seasons through the yearly cycle and how our connection to this creates dynamic mood shifts within us. The collection draws on our dependence with nature, for our health and happiness, in times of future uncertainty. The space, movement, and transference of color in the works create an atmosphere of how one feels when subjected to the force whilst surrounded by nature.” Adding, “The mesmerizing lines in each piece push and pull as if caught in a state of flux, creating infinite movement and naturalistic rhythm, appearing both serene and ominous at the same time. In areas of the paintings, the lines possess a tension twisting and distorting the form, whilst in other areas, the lines are free and flowing.”
