GERING & LóPEZ GALLERY is pleased to present Women: Sketches & Solutions, an exhibition of new work by New York-based artist Ryan McGinness. This will be McGinness’ first solo exhibition with the gallery.
For this exhibition, McGinness presents the series Women, a body of work that has occupied his attention for the past several years. Like previous works, these begin with numerous sketches. The Women works however are unique in that the sketches are done as academic figure drawings, in the artist-and-model salon tradition. The exhibition will be in two parts: for the Gering & López venue uptown, the exhibition will showcase McGinness’ working process and will be entirely in black & white. For the second venue, at Charles Bank Gallery on the Lower East Side, the works will be fluorescent paintings and sculptures derived from the process.
