Seven Shades of Sugar

COOPER COLE presents a solo exhibition from Mark DeLong.

There are seven shades of sugar in Heaven and rivers of vinegar in hell.

I know this because I backtraced it.

Running around like a chicken that’s about to get its head cut off, many points of viewing.

This meaty exhibition is falling right off the bone, the tomatoes are jumping from one vine to the next with minimal bruising, everyone is pleased.

We are Western Chicken, living vicariously by the sea.
