Where form meets function

A couple of days ago Ryan McGinness opened his new exhibition at Michael Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibition, entitled ‘Recent Paintings’, shows a new body of work of the fine artist. The series mostly consists of fluo colored paintings in different sizes and shapes.

” McGinness is known for his bold and refreshing paintings and installations that layer contemporary iconography to underscore the artist’s commentary on language, history, and symbolism. Re-imagining our world as a series of graphic icons, McGinness layers and collages these images to create complex and sophisticated paintings that shed light on our contemporary world. Boldly colorful and slick, McGinness deftly merges together digital techniques with more traditional crafts like silk screening and painting. Often likened to Andy Warhol, McGinness has developed a unique visual language to reflect on pop culture and the society in which we live.”
