For this fair, the gallery has decided to show two artists from the program: photographer Ryan McGinley and painter Stanley Whitney.
McGinley will show vibrant images from his recent Moonmilk series - photographs taken deep underneath the earth's surface - along with brand new pieces from his most recent road trip. McGinley's new works are more studied depictions of the manner in which the nude can be represented within nature. Whitney's works, bright modules of painted color piled one on top of the other, aggressively overload the visual field with dynamic possibilities. Although Whitney has been exhibiting his abstract paintings for the past forty years, he is the most recent addition to the gallery's roster and this acts as our introduction of his work to the international art fair community.
The pairing of these very diverse two artists foregrounds their intense explorations of color and should provide various unexpected collisions for the viewer.
