Fifth Floor Gallery Presents

“Seeing Stars”

Corrie Gregory January 10, 2015 - February 28, 2015 Opening reception Saturday, January 10, 6-9pm at Fifth Floor

Looking - Chapter 1 (2014) Mixed Media on Book Cover
7x 9.25 Unframed
Fifth Floor Gallery is pleased to announce, Seeing Stars, a new body of drawings and paintings by Los Angeles based artist Corrie Gregory. Creating characters that are evocative of old children's fables, Gregory’s unique eye and technical execution is at times as unsettling as it is familiar. Her process of using technical rendering while leaving herself open to chance allows her to explore this body’s similar subjects over and over, creating a narrative in the subtlety of the differences. The lackadaisical expressions and repetitive motifs begin to feel like the cyclical nature of a recurring dream, always changing and yet somehow the same. Painting on found objects such as vintage medical ephemera or old notebook paper also evokes a strange sense of nostalgia and can’t help but leave the viewer somewhat dazzled or entrapped, as if themselves seeing stars.

Corrie Gregory earned her BFA from Otis College of Art & Design in 1991. Recent exhibitions in Los Angeles include shows at The Nomad Gallery and Flower Pepper Gallery.

A group exhibition of panda inspired works. Curated by Nicole Bruckman

Opening Reception: Sat. June 7th, 2014, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Exhibition: June 7th – June 27th, 2014

For the show I created 5 small mixed media works. This collection was all about drawing and letting my imagination run wild. As I sketched it became apparent that I was creating a family and documenting the the various members.  The thought process was that they needed to be small and intimate. Like keepsakes having there own history and storyline. Please come check them out - You might recognize someone you know ;). Hope you like Panda's.

The sketch for this piece has been in my sketch collection for a few years. (I don't have a sketch book; I have files of drawings and sketches in a big old Harvest Gold file cabinet that has seen way too many moves.) 

When I was asked to be included in Of History And Hope, I had initially focused on a Tiger painting. I worked on this Bear for a break from the Tiger. But dang nab'it this bear became my first love.  I could feel this painting getting quiet - making the space more ethereal - less defined.  I'm sure I'll start making noise again and obsessing about those roots branches and trees.

I'll be posting the finished painting Change Of Heart. In the meantime

Also, save the date!  Saturday June 7th, 2014 from 6:30-9:00.  All I can say is "Pandamonium." More info to come.
