That's Entertainment

October 28, 2011

Opening Reception for

"Entertainment Tonight:  New Works by Ran Barnaclo and Larry Cocklin"

Show closes December 17, 2011

Larry with some of his masterpieces; directly next to him on the right is Han Solo after he has been carbon-frozen in Empire Strikes Back.

Larry's "Buck Rogers."

Ran revealing his true self.

ET is about celebrity and blockbusters and the slightly askew feverdream called the Entertainment Industry.  Ran and Larry's work use "entertainment" as a jumping off point to find personal myths and vision based on what is already in the public imagination:  they make private pictures from public spectacles.
