In the realm of pop culture, there are many uses of the word “red.” Most obviously there’s the color, usually used to convey either physical or psychological horror through Hell or blood. It can also be used to represent love, it’s a movie series starring Bruce Willis, and a main character’s name in the Shawshank Redemption. That’s just the tip of the crimson iceberg.
And so Red (the disambiguation, not the movie) is both the theme and title of the latest show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. Opening July 5, it’s curated by the awesome online art gallery Planet Pulp, which is finally moving offline and into the physical realm. Artist Jayson Weidel has recruited over 50 artists from his collective to create unique and clever art for the topic “Red” and /Film is proud to exclusively provide your first look at art from the show featuring Hellboy, Judge Dredd, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shawshank Redemption, Sunshine, The Shining, Carrie and more.
Red, a pop culture tribute to the color red, will have a special limited run from July 5th thru July 14th at the Hero Complex Gallery, 2020 South Robertson Blvd., Studio D, Los Angeles, CA. Learn more and buy stuff online at www.herocomplexgallery.com.
Mouse over each for the artist name and subject.
