★ Tonight! @coreyhelfordgallery ⭐ is proud to present a special exhibit, "Waxploitation Stories for Ways & Means"
Co-curated by @hihicaro and @waxploitation founder @jeff.antebi , this is the companion exhibition of the children's benefit book project 📖 of the same name with short stories written by world famous musicians such as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Frank Black, Devendra Banhart, Bon Iver, Alec Empire, Kathleen Hanna, Anna von Hausswolff and illustrated by James Jean, Joe Coleman, Kay & Sunny, Swoon, Herakut, Candice Trip, me 😊❤️ and many others... 🔥
"I've always been interested in songwriters who craft compelling stories to music, and painters who tell stories with a single canvas. Stories for Ways & Means allows me an opportunity to blend both into one project" explains curator Jeff Antebi, who created the book. "the artists I collaborated with are ones who I felt represented Outsiders because children in some ways are also outsiders sometimes, viewing the world of adults around them. It seemed fun to have these artists speaking to kids with their unique points of view"
A portion of proceeds from both the book project and the art show will benefit Room to Read, 826 National, Pencils Of Promise and WAR Child among a number of non -profits working to build schools and educate children around the world.
The exhibit features over two dozen drawings, paintings and illustrations. ⭐️✨

"Finally, the floating parade reaches its destination, carrying the spark of hope. Now it can light the dark in that house, where the soul of the child has been searching for centuries, in vain. Now he can lightly touch that light, feel its warmth and let it guide him, fearless, through the darkness, among the fireflies, just to go far away. But, he won’t be alone in his journey; the gilded moths, which have always caressed him in the night, are now following his glare, twirling endlessly around it. The free soul of the child turns his gaze to look at us, before he slowly fades away, glad but aware that one day he will be back."

“...When the little boy died, his sounds and spirit still remained inside this house. It was in that state he got in contact with the dead farmers. The little boy's beautiful sounds brought them to him. They felt sorry for the boy, because even in his death he couldn't leave the house. The glowing light they left for him was light that he used for trying to find his way out. Unfortunately the light never brought him outside. It was not until Mr. Wassberg moved in here that the boy could finally leave this place. That ́s when the singing men stopped marching. But, if you've not already noticed, the boy, even as a free spirit, is still visiting this house now and then...”★ From...."The Little Boy and the Glowing Globe" ★

"Suddenly the quietness of the sleep is broken by the delicate intrusion of melancholic notes, made of cold blue and purple tones; they float light in the full moon night. The child is still sleeping, but in the middle of the night, that sorrowful melody sneaks in her dreams to disturb her. Hence, tears start streaming down her face and then fall as dew on the trees of the wood; they can perceive the same tragic sound that makes them bent, suffering, and finally dry out. The child follows the notes, in trance, while she meanders between her dreams and the reality of that song, which now she is singing, becoming part of the gloomy parade..."

"...Only 50 years ago every full moon hour a big group of people came marching from the lake and through the forest up to this house. During their march they sang an unfamiliar song together. The song was beautiful but very sad. The harmonies made the trees die out of sorrow and sleeping children cry in their dreams. Only a few people were able to see them, but many heard them singing..." ★ From...."The Little Boy and the Glowing Globe" ★
