Crucial Fiction, Ron English Solo Art Exhibition at Opera Gallery in NYC

Combrat Rising by Ron English

Crucial Fiction solo art exhibition by influential New York contemporary artist and curator Ron English at Opera Gallery will display a series of new paintings by Ron that all collaborate with his former child self. The show will start on Thursday, November 1, 2012 and be on display until Thursday, November 29, 2012 at Opera Gallery in New York.

As stated in the Crucial Fiction publication :

The work address a fantastical question: What might happen if a 50 year old man at the height of his powers as fine artist and painter, could finally animate the elaborate visions constructed by his 8-year-old self, that boy who dug holes to China in the backyard while imagining every blade of grass as a green army soldier laid low by the advancing plastic hordes of cowboys, indians and assorted disposable heroes? What might result from the combustible alchemy of imagination and experience, of mastery and abandon? In “Crucial Fiction” Ron answers this question.
