Everything Is Everywhere
Once again Ryan McGinness blurs the lines between fine art and design in his latest experimental book. Featured are McGinness current paintings and sculptures from different bodies of work _ _Mindscapes, _Blackholes and _Women _ as well as site-specific work made for these pages. For _Women, his photographic sessions resulted in 2D forms, their gestures and movements captured, and their images layered with graphics. Reproductions of reproductions fold in on themselves as McGinness treats the metadata captions about the work with as much (or even more) importance as the reproduced works they describe. Adventurous typography is also employed with incongruous phrases and texts culled from the artists sketchbook. McGinness is as experimental as ever, and has produced a collection of new work imbued with youthful energy. The stunning juxtapositions of all these elements create a textured and vividly explosive book that continues to reward readers after multiple visits.
