Mixed-Media Artist Corey Pemberton Explores Storytelling Through Objects in New Exhibition

Born in Virginia and now an LA resident, mixed-media artist, and glassblower Corey Pemberton is well-known for his diaristic snapshots of everyday experiences. His latest solo exhibition, ‘Person, Place, Thing’, now on display at UNREPD gallery in Los Angeles, showcases this unique artistic perspective.

Personal Stories Told Through Everyday Objects

In a reflection of the exhibition’s title, Pemberton encourages viewers to glimpse his life and values through the everyday objects he portrays in his work. He believes that each item we bring into our lives, from an old ticket stub to a tray bought on holiday, carries a unique story.

Highlighting Cultural Significance

Through his artworks, Pemberton insists that we understand and acknowledge the cultural significance of these objects. A gallery release states: “When Pemberton puts a can of hair sheen on a pedestal, literally, he insists that we open our minds figuratively to the significance of that object within the culture in which it was created and is applied.”

Influencing Cultural Perception

Pemberton believes that by understanding the personal and social histories embedded in these items, we can reshape the systems that distribute stamps of cultural significance.

The ‘Person, Place, Thing’ exhibition launched earlier this month at the UNREPD gallery in Los Angeles and will remain open to the public until July 15.
