The Conner Brothers are back, and LA’s got ’em! Following their sold-out London show, the Conner Brothers return to the United States for their first ever US solo show at Guy Hepner, opening November 21 and running through December 5, 2013.
Controversial twins Franklyn and Brendan Connor’s series “True Love Stories” is a perceptive and disturbing critique of contemporary American culture. The brothers came to their scathing yet humorous views of relationships in the digital age , seeped in references to popular and historical historical after escaping from the notorious extremist Christian cult known as “The Family” (a different “Family” from the one which impacted Julian Assange’s early life). Deprived form access to the outside world, the twins gleaned bits of information from other cult members. At age sixteen ran away, and began riding the rails, eventually landing in Brooklyn.
In order to process the influx of information, the twins developed a system to process the overwhelming amount of information around them: Each would read, watch and listen to different things and make notes, then they would share with each other, making art
trying to make sense out of the world.
Now in their early twenties, the Conner Brothers live and work in Missouri as their art work gains commercial and critical success (I’ll say it again: Sold-out London show). “True Love Stories” is a not-to-be-missed exhibition at Guy Hepner, a gallery which specializes in major name pop artists like Damien Hirst, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol.
