Ron English, is returning to London for his first ever UK show : LAZARUS RISING

With its deliberately provocative theme of ‘resurrection’, the exhibition reflects this challenging period of socio-political and economic flux.

“Ron English continues to exploit the mismatch between effortless style and edgy content in his paintings. It’s an effective strategy, wrong-footing viewers and making them reconsider the way they might absorb imagery from advertising without critically engaging with it.”
Ben Jones, art historian.
