Photo Recap: Ron English ‘Seasons in Supurbia’ at Corey Helford Gallery

Renowned artist, art prankster, street artist and simply a fantastic painter Ron English held his solo show opening at LA's Corey Helford Gallery on November 19th. Entitled “Seasons In Supurbia” the show features 18 new paintings as well as sculptures in which he captures intimate moments in suburban life — dosed with a cocktail of subversive visuals, consumer culture, and POPaganda politics. In this series the artist explores the inability of the 21st century over saturated American soul to distinguish between political realities and pop culture illusions, constructing doll-house depictions of comic-contrived reality to compete against global belief systems. In short: Suburban Surrealism. The show is quite impressive and shouldn't be missed. Also be sure to watch this space for our extensive video interview with Ron English coming soon. "Seasons in Supurbia" on view until December 10th.
