The Stone Like

Tomorrow is the opening of Billy Norrby's "The Stone Like" solo exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery Circa out in Culver City, CA. In this new body of oil paintings "the inhabitants in his works find themselves in a state between gradual petrification and hopeful rejuvenation. As the memories fade, only the blackened metal remains to scar the landscape; a view littered by silent statues, battered and featureless.They represent the last remnants of a half-forgotten, man-made age. Now deeply fused with rock and stone, it is no longer possible to discern whether the subjects were once alive or always part of the earth." The selection of works are absolutely stunning and a must see if you are out in the area from now until Nov. 16th.
