Ryan McLaughlin

13 Oct 2010–6 Nov 2010


Timothy Taylor Gallery is delighted to present a solo exhibition by Berlin-based American artist Ryan McLaughlin. In recent years Ryan McLaughlin's paintings have taken their inspiration from a range of sources including historical and imagined sports heroes of the American baseball leagues, modern medicine, and amateur botany. Characterised by fixed rules, codes, and subsequently a lack of ambiguity, these areas of interest and their accoutrements are completely at odds with the nebulous nature of painting practice. McLaughlin's compositions inhabit and acknowledge this zone of difference - between logic or rational systems and the absurdities of image making - and celebrate the irony of affirmation.
