Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Somewhere between an artists book and a catalogue, Installationview provides insight into the works and process of artist Ryan McGinness. The book is a dense collection of new paintings, works on paper, installations, sketches and notes, inspiration snapshots, and pieces made specifically for its pages.

“McGinness has developed an expansive vocabulary of eccentric, vaguely familiar symbols drawn from art historical and modern vernacular sources.”—the New York Times

“An unusual marriage of abstraction and representation”—Art News

“For those inclined to debate the line that separates graphic design from fine art, there is no better case study than Ryan McGinness.”—Metropolis

“McGinness is on image overload.”—the Boston Globe

“The 33-year-olds recent paintings combine colorful icons drawn from mythology, pop culture, and nature”—Departures

Book News Annotation:

At first glance much of McGinness's flat artwork looks like sophisticated graphic design, but the second glance reveals the absence of an advertised product. Using his own personal iconography that resembles already existing pop culture images, McGinness seamlessly merges graphic design with fine art. His work employs flat shapes, geometric forms, images from the public domain, and iconography of all sorts, which are digitally combined and silk-screened on skateboards, T-shirts, paper cups & plates, soccer balls, etc. This volume is part catalog, part artist's book, and contains reproductions of McGinness's paintings, drawings, notes, objects, installations, and artwork made specifically for this book. An interview with the artist and several essays about his life and work are included.

Synopsis:

Barely thirty years old, Ryan McGinness has already achieved a lifetime's worth of personal and critical success. A graphic designer known for his signature blend of psychedelic abstract with product-oriented representation, McGinness uses a hypnotic personal iconography of symbols and images, which are recontextualized in media as diverse as soccer balls and agnes b. dress shirts.

This volume features a wide range of McGinness's art and design, including works on paper, drawings, installations, and sketchbook selections. With boundless creativity and graphic agility, McGinness has succeeded in bridging a significant gap in contemporary design: His work is original; yet it is equally at home on gallery walls as it is on the mass-produced. Ryan McGinness shows how, by extending the limitations of graphic design, he has created an aesthetic that is palpably relevant, instantly recognizable, and unquestionably his own.

..."Ryan has elevated graphic design to an art form." ― Jalouse

"A slick and inventive designer"

― The New York Times

"Ryan McGinness is an original"

― ArtNews

..."McGinness's style works equally well for corporate clients and the most exactingly attuned and self-policed hipsters..."

― BlackBook
