Openings: Ron English @ Shooting Gallery

Ron English’s show “The Secret History of KISS” (previewed) opened last weekend at the Shooting Gallery. He took the band’s trademark face paint and melded it with baroque era-styled paintings for an unexpected effect. It’s like he used a time machine, took Rembrandt hostage, and forced him to add the iconic makeup to his paintings. This show also reminded us as to how amazing and versatile Ron’s technical skills are. More photos after the jump.
