Artist Ryan McGinness is installing his latest work Women: The Blacklight Paintings as well as a set of vinyl installations at The Shop and Le Bain in The Standard, New York presented by Country Club. The work is the follow-up to last December's installation during Art Basel Miami and will be followed by another showing this spring in Los Angeles.
The playful and colorful works take you back to the early 1980s, consisting of fluorescent paint that glows under a black light. The graphic vinyl installations are on view at The Standard, New York Shop and 18th floor club Le Bain during Armory Week through March 6. The overall effect combines a Picasso-esque adoration of the female form with the energy of Keith Haring pieces.
The Standard always combines art with commerce and 300 Limited edition signed and numbered Blacklight posters are for sale for $200 each. One silkscreened print edition of the Blacklight Nudie Cards, printed in fluorescent inks and in an edition of 52 plus five artist's proofs for $5,500 is available through The Standard Shop in New York. The Blacklight Nudie Cards are custom designed classic poker playing cards that will be released in LA in the Spring and available across all Standards.
