“The Gay 90s: West” è la più recente mostra personale di Mark Ryden inaugurata alla Kohn Gallery di Los Angeles il 3 maggio e visitabile fino al 28 giugno 2014.
Il titolo si ispira al nome che ha assunto la fine ‘800 in America, un’epoca che viene ricordata con nostalgia, quando la vita era più semplice, genuina e spensierata.

“The Gay 90s: West” is the latest solo exhibition of Mark Ryden opened at Kohn Gallery in Los Angeles from May 3 to June 28, 2014.
The title refers to the decade of the 1890s, an age remembered with nostalgia, when life was more simple, genuine and carefree.

“The Gay 90s: West” si può considerare la continuazione di “The Gay 90s: Olde Tyme Art Show” la personale tenuta alla Kasmin Gallery di New York nel 2010, anche qui Mark Ryden usa come temi la nostalgia, la sentimentalità e il kitsch senza ironia, con sincerità lasciandosi ispirare dai “memorabilia” che colleziona nel suo studio, per esempio l’idea di “The Parlor” è nata da una pubblicità di scarpe dell’epoca Vittoriana.

“The Gay 90s: West” can be considered a continuation of “The Gay 90s Olde Tyme Art Show” housed at the Kasmin Gallery in New York in 2010, here Mark Ryden explores notions of nostalgia, sentimentality and kitsch without irony, with sincerity inspired by the “memorabilia” that he collects in his studio, for example, the idea of “The Parlor” comes from an old Victorian-era shoe advertisement.

La mostra ospita dipinti recenti e passati, disegni su carta e un’installazione che comprende il lavoro più ambizioso dell’artista, The Parlor (Allegory of Magic, Quintessence and Divine Mystery), un’opera di 2,5×3 metri che ha impegnato Mark Ryden per quasi un anno.

The exhibition displays new and old paintings, works on paper and an installation that includes the artist’s most ambitious work, The Parlor (Allegory of Magic, Quintessence and Divine Mystery), a 96-by-120-inch painting that took him nearly a year to finish it.

È possibile anche ammirare “Incarnation” del 2009, dipinto cult esibito pochi mesi prima che Lady Gaga sfoggiasse il suo famoso vestito di carne agli MTV Music Awards 2010.

You can also admire the iconic “Incarnation” painted in 2009, displayed a few months before Lady Gaga wearing her famous meat dress at the MTV Music Awards 2010.

    Curious to know why Ryden chose the title that he did. As always, these ‘Alice In Wonderland’-esque portraits are always keen to be stared at forever.
