MC Supersized joins his creator, artist Ron English, at the Opera Gallery in SoHo last night.
Characters emerging from surrealist paintings to confront the artist who created them? Sounds like the plot of a classic Twilight Zone episode. At least it did until a limo pulled up in front of the Opera Gallery in SoHo last night and disgorged four bodypainted “cowgirls” to storm the art opening inside.
The cowgirls, a sexy half human, half bovine creation of pop artist Ron English, came in with (toy) guns drawn and blazing. English created them for paintings like his “Bovine Growth Hormone Babe,” a criticism of the bovine growth hormone (rBGH) used in dairy cows.
