Getting out and about

Last night I went with my friend, and fellow artist Petros Pappalas to see whats going on out there in Soho. So we went to the Opera Gallery last night to see the Ron English show "Immortal Underground". It was a great showing, as he filled up the gallery space with all works he completed within the past year or so. It's always exciting to see his work- even more so to see it in person. I suggest some of ya'll get down there and have a look see (all though when you guys get there, there won't be any half naked cow girls or a big morbidly obece Ronald McDonald (in person anyway).

the actual subject of piece is centered around religion. This piece is basically asking how the modern man would view the biblical prophets- if a man stumbled out of the desert with no food or water saying he had seen visions of God, what would your response to that man be? The truth is, we hear outlandish things every day of our lives and we choose to dismiss or accept information unquestioningly because of the source- verifiable or not.

Until Next Time
