Billy Norrby’s ‘Of The Vanguard’

Opening on April 16 at Corpo Gallery is the debut solo show of NYC artist Billy Norrby, ‘Of the Vanguard’. The impressive oil paintings reflect the classical styles of a past era, while the subject matter is infused with the tumult and unrest of our current climate as characters don gas masks amid war torn cityscapes. Capturing the grit and strife of the underbelly of an apocalyptic environment, Norby also imbues the works with a subtle, melancholy romance, as beautiful woman appear saintly and unmasked, seemingly immune to the threats around them. Take a peek at more after the jump.
