“From the Archives” Free Opening Art Exhibition
November 8, 2018 | 6 pm to 8 pm (Opening Night)
ZK Gallery, 213 Jefferson St. San Francisco
Drawing from Russell Young’s archive of personal favorites, British-American artist Russell Young has selected some twenty-five works for a survey spanning the last ten years of his career. Following on the heels of Forever Young: A Retrospective Essay at the Polk Museum of Art in 2015-2016, this best-of “play list” includes notable pieces from nearly a dozen series—pitting the grittiness of his early “Pig Portraits,” here represented by a mug shot of Elvis blown up to monumental proportions, against the tragic glamour of “Femme Fatale,” featuring a close-up of Marilyn in tears, or the explosive beauty of his recent “New York Grenades,” human-scale “portraits” of a deadly WWII weapon.
