The twenty plus paintings created over the past three years feature English’s iconic characters navigating metamorphic landscapes and grappling with delusions of ecstasy and heartbreak.

English is returning to the Gallery when, in 2016 he unveiled Ron English: Guernica, eighteen paintings expressing English’s narrative to Pablo Picasso’s 1937 painting Guernica.
