SHAG: “Autumn’s Come Undone”- 11.19.09
On upcoming shows i’m rather giddy about ~ SHAG’s “Autumn’s Come Undone” at the Corey Helford Gallery opens this Saturday, November 21st at 8pm. The press release has me intrigued “For the past decade, Agle’s iconic environments and playful narratives have sublimely captured California cool, mid-century modern design and lifestyles of the retro glamourati. His new exhibition “Autumn’s Come Undone” represents a turning point for Agle, adopting darker themes and a deeper palette to explore life’s excesses. “Something happened to me in the last year - call it an unexpected change-of-heart, if you like, but a lot of the unfettered hedonism my artwork espoused has begun to catch up with me,” Agle explains. Somber hues of okra, burnt oranges, and delicate grays, replace Agle’s signature acid brights, and as his subjects near the autumn of their lives, they venture away from suburban comforts to embrace a simpler, more authentic way of life.” And from the images (a few more sneak peeks on the next page!) i’m excited to see so many animals showing up in this series!
