This June, join iconic Los Angeles artist Joe Ledbetter for the highly-anticipated debut of Magnus Maximus. A solo exhibition of different stripes, Magnus Maximus is
an epic travel adventure based on Ledbetter’s journeys through Europe and beyond.
For his first solo show at Corey helford Gallery, Ledbetter creates an extraordinary collection of new paintings and drawings, filled with engaging narratives and bold visuals that are as autobiographical as they are a classic hero story. A true tale of wretched victory, Magnus Maximus is a character study in twists of fate and fortune, power and privilege.
“For me, it has cumulatively epitomized everything I’ve been working toward for the past 9 years as a painter. Personal narrative, sardonic or humorous undertones, familiar scenarios, strong shadowed bold lines, bright colors, limited palette, and hopefully great characters one can sympathize and fall in love with.”
Open to the public, the reception for Magnus Maximus will take place on Friday, June 4 from 7 to 10pm, and the show will be exhibited until June 23, 2010 at Corey Helford Gallery, Culver city, LA
