“Toybox: America In The Visuals”, all-new works by Ron English, Corey Helford Gallery on 12-2







Advance online previews for Ron English‘s “Toybox” can be requested at [email protected].

There is something about an upcoming show with Ron English that makes it feel like waiting for Christmas.  The paintings, the installations, the ambience, the fun crowds — it’s a big party and an incredible art experience that merge into one unforgettable event.  Join us when the doors open from 7-11PM on Saturday, December 2nd, for this joyous, intense experience and witness an incredible new series of paintings, plus sculptures and vinyl and…well, you’ll have to be there to see.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  Best, Jan.

TOYBOX: America in the Visuals

Ron English returns to Corey Helford Gallery with TOYBOX, a new body of work deploying the artist’s long established visual vocabulary into multilayered narratives of ambition and imagination. TOYBOX deconstructs the search for new meaning in a culture that is based as much on the imagination of its participants as on the physical realities these human concepts are played against. The toy based childhood imagination aesthetic of the work allows for a playful new look at a society in the throes of reinventing itself.

The exhibition, featuring 36 new oil paintings, as well as sculpture and installation, examines the creation of the self, and thus the greater society, as an act of imagination, a skill developed in childhood largely through the activity of play and the use of toys. Toys introduce a codified visual narrative of the individual and the archetypes that construct the collective narrative that is the underpinning of society. 

One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive, Ron English is considered the Godfather of Street Art and Seminal Pioneer of Pop Surrealism. For this exhibition, English has also co-produced a musical soundtrack to be performed by new character DJ Popaganda. The exhibition will also include a new outdoor mural and a pop up store selling Ron’s limited edition toys.
