Attention all New York Art Lovers: The Gay 90′s: Old Tyme Art Show, is an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by the Los Angeles artist Mark Ryden. On view at the Paul Kasmin Gallery from April 29 to June 5, 2010, this will be Ryden’s first significant solo show in New York since 2003.
In his hauntingly beautiful and masterfully executed oil paintings, Ryden creates his own contemporary mythologies whose archetypes include fairy tale creatures, historical figures, and pop cultural icons. Think pretty pinkish pastel clad little girls and Abe Lincoln working a meat grinder. What a dynamic way to start your summer 2010 gallery exploration!
