Opening Reception Saturday, June 26, 2010 from 7 - 11pm On View June 26 - July 7, 2010 This summer, Southern California artist Brandi Milne joins Corey Helford Gallery for a special engagement entitled “My Heart Shall Not Fear”. Milne’s second solo exhibition with the gallery reveals a more personal side to her paintings than before. 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. Her first solo exhibition in over a year, Milne has been diligently working from her Huntington Beach studio in preparation for the show, and she explains, “I’ve never been more excited about a series of work than I am with this one. Viewers can expect much warmth and intrigue as I rediscover the sugar-coated, austere world that swells and flows from inside my head. ‘My Heart Shall Not Fear’ is a story of life and loss as I continue my personal exploration.” For the exhibition, Milne’s palette surveys new territories as well, presenting rich hues of burnt oranges and seafoam greens alongside deep crimson reds. Skulls, black cats, birds and horses populate Milne’s whimsical narratives as they encounter secret adventures that ultimately lead to the path of rediscovery. Joining Milne in the loft, will be limited-edition works by Lithuanian artist Natalie Shau. Her stunning digital renderings bloom with gothic charm and fantastical symbolism. Open to the public, the reception for “My Heart Shall Not Fear” will take place on Saturday, June 26 from 7 to 11pm, and the special twelve-day exhibition will be on view until July 7, 2010.

Our dream for the new MF Gallery in Brooklyn (A.K.A. The "Fortress MF") has always been to adorn the facade with a 20 foot 3-D skull. Made of fiberglass or a similar material, it will be reminiscent of an old Spook House ride, and would make The Fortress MF an unmissable Brooklyn Landmark! This is a big project that has been in the planning stages for a long time, but one that we have not yet been able to realize due to time and monetary constraints. "I Need Your Skull" will help to make MF Gallery's Giant Skull Project a reality! All of the proceeds from this show will go towards building the giant skull. As a part of this show, we will be revealing concept sketches for the construction of the "Fortress MF Skull" for the very first time!
