Ryan McGinness at Kohn Gallery
Saturday, March 19, 2016 - Friday, April 22, 2016

Kohn Gallery is pleased to present its second solo show with New York-based artist, Ryan McGinness. The exhibition, titled #metadata, will feature an experiential installation and new paintings from two important bodies of work, Studio Views and Screen Combines, and will be on view from March 19–April 22, 2016. Ryan McGinness is known for densely layering his original iconic drawings to create complex and sophisticated paintings. His surreal symbols employ the visual language of the universal modernist signs found all around us. In #metadata, McGinness turns this practice in on itself with Studio Views that depict paintings situated in the artist’s studio. However, these paintings-of-paintings are not reproductions. Rather, they are primary productions located within reproductions of the studio, complete with the inclusion of the tools used to produce the works, sawhorses, silkscreens, and paint buckets. In the adjoining side gallery, the Screen Combines take the tools of productions out of the paintings and into the viewer’s personal space. Visitors must navigate through a headhigh maze of paintings made on the artist’s used silkscreens in order to locate his smaller painting studies. Not only do the Screen Combines reference painting productions and image reproduction, but the painting studies also incorporate crop marks, registration marks, and other self-referential compositional elements.
