Lazarides Gallery presents the first UK exhibition of paintings by painter, pundit and prankster, Ron English. Spanning multiple mediums, Skin Deep is an exploration of the intersections, discrepancies and synchronicities of personal mythologies on display in our public personas.
Skin Deep presents multi-layered portraits of some of his most iconic characters, tracing the arc of their inner lives. Often using his children as models, English chronicles the soul’s sojourn through Pop dioramas of fear and appetite, aspiration and rage. While paying homage to the great art before him, English maintains his very personal point of view, transforming the public to intimate and the universal to specific.
Ron English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones.
