In Redd Walitzki’s latest solo show, they bring their unique fusion of grandiose surrealism to Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles, California, USA. Originally from Germany, the new contemporary artist is now based in Seattle. And not surprisingly, Redd has a huge international following. It’s hard not to fall for their oil and mixed media paintings, set within curiously winding laser-cut panels, which only further enhance their atmospheric narratives. Redd’s new solo exhibition, The Days of Miracle and Wonder, builds on their inspiration from the Pacific Northwest’s lush rainforests and the ornate Baroque ornamentation of Bavaria. It takes you further and beyond. Right around the world, imbuing many of Redd’s experiences from their globe trotting adventures.
During this strange period in history where it feels like our world is shrinking, these works embrace moments in the past filled with exploration, mystery, and wonder. As nymphs transform into coral and lantern-lit boats drift by moonlight, the paintings lure us into the undiscovered spaces over the edge of the map. This series is a mixture of both wistful nostalgia for a lost time of myth and adventure. And the sense that such wonders could bloom again.Redd Walitzki

Press Release: Redd Walitzki’s newest series, The Days of Miracle and Wonder implores the viewer to embark on a journey to a lost time of myth and transformation. When Redd began this series, they were on a journey around the globe. Drinking in a myriad of experiences while slipping from one country to the next. Versailles’s opulent halls, the misty harbors of Vietnam, and the golden coastline of the Canary Islands all became woven together into a rich tapestry of inspiration. Locked down during the pandemic, these experiences became a well of hope to draw upon as they painted colorful works of daydream and escape.
