Ron English "NeoNature" Opening @ Corey Helford Gallery

NeoNature, a colorful dive through the mind of contemporary pop illustrator, Ron English, opened this Saturday, December 12th, at the newly unwrapped Arts District location of Los Angeles' Corey Helford Gallery.

On view now till January 9th, the premier show centers around the theme of evolution— described by the show's press release as "the flaw that propels civilization." Showcased throughout the body of work, English offers up a multitude of mediums to make his point, ranging from paintings on canvas, to sculptural figures to poignant pieces of performance art depicting what appears to be an evolved species of gun-wielding cow.

Within the show, English offers his adaptation of the concept of 'evolution,' breaking down what the word means for an array of creatures; expect diabolical looking chihuahuas and ruinous reptiles among others.  In his usual fashion, English bites off a fantastically large existential topic, producing work surrounding the notion of evolution that is of course elite in its execution and mastery, but is wild, absurd and completely punk rock.

Attended by hundreds, the show brought out many appreciated attendees from the curious general public, to collectors and local artists. The crowd that night included POW artists Greg "Craola" Simkins, Lola and Luke Chueh, as well contemporary favorites Shepard Fairey, Gary Baseman, Brandi Milne, Shag, Korin Faught and Natalia Fabia.
