Finding Infinity will explore three of McGinness’ recent bodies of works – his Black Holes, his Mindscapes, and his Women series. Each series represents the in depth study of a combination ideas. The Black Holes will be represented by a series of round paintings. This series has been in progress since 2004, and is the exploration of outer space, über fanciness, and inner space. McGinness is interested in the way that the vortex and ideas of theoretical physics can be used as metaphors for exploring the mind. In the series Mindscapes, consisting of paintings and prints, McGinness layers iconic drawings and symbols from throughout art history to explore the inner art world and create a mental landscape. The Women, a series of prints and sculptures, uses sensual female forms that McGinness has developed through an extensive sketching process to create hybrid images and sculptures by layering and juxtaposing different appendages from various ‘models’ into a sensuous yet abstract whole.

Ryan McGinness is also unveiling a monumental mural at the University City Science Center in conjunction with Bridgette Mayer Gallery and the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. Dedication: Friday, October 11, 5:30 – 8:00 PM. Location: 3711 Market Street.
