Ryan Mcginness, Saatchi Gallery
Drawing from his background in the design industry, Ryan McGinnesss work resolves the clinical graphic aesthetics of media as vast, contemplative fields of intimate meditation. Under Five Chairs Psychiatrists Wink is set across three panels, each beaconing with a baroque entrancement. Woven together with delicate intricacy, McGinnesss forms converge in a kaleidoscope of free-flowing associations: Stylised motifs, calligraphic patterns, and abstracted tattoo-like insignia overlap in arabesque mandalas. Framed within rich black and red planes, McGinnesss painting is reminiscent of ancient tapestries, fabricating the iconography of contemporary experience as spiritual and timeless.
