For the past three years, English has been working on a long-form story, "Meskin and Umezo". He hopes to complete it by early 2020. On view now at Marvin Gardens Gallery in New York is a solo exhibition of English's art, consisting of the first 46 pages of 'Meskin and Umezo'. The show runs until June 9th. Presented here is an excerpt of that work.
