Ron English’s “Seasons in Supurbia”

Many were in attendance and none were disappointed on Nov. 19th at Corey Helford Gallery when one of the most prolific artists of our generation, Ron English, debuted his first solo exhibit with the gallery. Entitled "Seasons in Supurbia", the exhibition features 18 new photo-realistic paintings from the Pop Surrealist Master along with several large sculptures of the artist's iconic characters.

As the title suggests, English saturates the intimate moments of suburban life with rebellious imagery, consumer culture and POPaganda politics. Outside "Supurbia", Cameo Deer (dressed in camouflage coats that change with the seasons) inhabit a hyper-real forest alongside a shark, alligator and Yorkshire Terrier. In addition to the new works, Jan and Bruce Helford surprised the artist (as well as gallery guests) with a four string quartet dressed as English's beloved Combrat characters. - Stephanie Chefas
