John Ryan at William Rupnik TONIGHT

William Rupnik Gallery is proud to present:

An exhibition by John Ryan
Mug Shots and Millionaires

November 6 - November 22, 2009

Opening reception 7-10 pm Friday, November 6, 2009

Mug Shots and Millionaires, a new solo exhibit by John Ryan, features works that poke fun at our lifestyles, our environment and the idiosyncratic stuff that makes us all seem a bit bizarre. Incorporating his vivacious sense of humor, John creates portrait and conversational pieces that are spontaneous and rawly modern. Working rapidly and prolifically using acrylic and house paints, pencil and found objects, he focuses on his combination of color and fabric within his arrangements. Each piece differs but remains a rudimentary and spirited emotional response inspired by pop culture and satire, growth and dissolution.
