Lori Nelson’s “Cryptotweens: Find My Friends” at Corey Helford Gallery.

Opening on Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, California is artist Lori Nelson’s solo exhibition “Cryptotweens: Find My Friends.”

From Corey Helford’s press release: In her 2016 exhibition, “Cryptotweens Are Like,” the Brooklyn-based painter presented a cast of whimsical monster-tweens who are ferociously flawed. In this ongoing series, her young monsters are usually in a position of self-discovery and power, potentially mastering their world as they encounter adolescence. Whether they are human with fantastical features or super-powerful cryptids with unusual apps on their smartphones, we can recognize ourselves in each of Nelson’s subjects. Her new series – “Cryptotweens: Find My Friends” – takes place in a parallel universe where the subjects are neither child nor teen, human nor monster, and are on the verge of discovering their own personal powers.

Cryptotweens: Find My Friends” will be on view until June 3rd, 2017.
