Ron English X Alex Pardee at FIFTY24SF Gallery
FIFTY24SF Gallery presents ‘Letters From Digested Children’ by Alex Pardee and ‘Mythographic Vicissitudes’ by Ron English, opening this Thursday 8th January 7-9pm. Split into two floors the Gallery will hold ‘Letters From Digested Children’ upstairs and ‘Mythographic Vicissiudes’ downstairs.
In “Letters From Digested Children,” Alex Pardee pays homage to the children who are eaten by monsters. Alex states: Each year, thousands of children turn up missing. Some are found. But most, unfortunately, are not. Many of the children are victims of abduction, some are runaways, and a large handful of them . . . have been EATEN by monsters.
For “Mythographic Vicissitudes,” Ron created a series of paintings based on variations on modern mythologies. Applying a sense of reverence to his patented mash of religion, history and art, English gives equal weight to all mythologies, from Jesus to Bigfoot to Expressionism. “Loch Ness Starry Night” depicts the emergence of the monster as seen through the eyes of Vincent Van Gogh.
A must see show for all English and Pardee fans, be sure you are there.
