Corey Helford Gallery is proud to premiere Glazed Machinations, a new body of work by their longest featured artist, Eric Joyner, opening Saturday, June 23 in the Main Gallery. Joyner was Corey Helford Gallery’s very first solo show back in 2006. In Glazed Machinations, Joyner creates a love letter to California, infusing the coastal landscape and its cities with his signature vintage robots and donuts. The new body of work, comprised of over a dozen medium and large scale paintings, as well as pencil and charcoal drawings, will also feature Corgis, sea serpents, new robot characters he’s never painted before, and more.

“I just like them,” Joyner explains of his choice to focus on robots and donuts. “I like the way they look. I like the way donuts taste.”  Apparently he’s not alone. Eric’s works are constantly being discovered by new collectors worldwide, and his robots and donuts-themed paintings already grace the walls of some of the top art-collecting luminaries of both the entertainment and business fields. In his latest book, “Robotic Existentialism: The Art of Eric Joyner,” released in February 2018, Joyner placed his robots and donuts in classic art, in front of the computer, in ancient times and more. In Glazed Machinations, the work is inspired by his recent trip to Las Vegas, Yosemite and the Lost Coast of Northern California.

Shortly before the premiere of his Corey Helford show, the next issue of the newly rebooted MAD Magazine, featuring his commissioned cover, will hit newsstands. In April, the magazine returned with an exciting lineup of new talent on board.

The opening reception for Eric Joyner’s Glazed Machinations will be hosted Saturday, June 23 from 7pm - 11pm in the Main Gallery. The reception is open to the public and the exhibit will be on view through July 21. The space is open Tuesday - Saturday, 12pm - 6pm. Corey Helford Gallery is located at 571 S. Anderson St. Los Angeles, CA 90033.
