Ron Zakrin Solo Show of New Works at 323East
New works on display September 26th – October 26th, 2009
Opening Saturday, Sept 26th, 6pm
Ron Zakrin has been a creative force in Detroit’s artistic community since the mid-nineties – a period when the city was riding the crest of an electronic music wave then sweeping the world. His earliest paintings were meant to complement both that music and his own personal contributions as a recording artist (under the name Goudron); since that time his canvases have become more ambitious and are recognized nationally for both their originality and their (frequently) haunting savagery. Zakrin is an artist with a deep desire to probe deeply beneath the skin – and his skills are as much “surgical” as they are aesthetic.
Zakrin’s solo flight at 323 East in Royal Oak will bring his career up-to-date and will also augment a growing critical reputation here and abroad.
