We recently had the opportunity to stop by for a look at the long awaited solo from Mark Ryden at the new Kohn Gallery location in Los Angeles. Entitled The Gay 90s: West (see the East showing in 2010), the exhibition included stunning new paintings from the master of his field featuring some of his most iconic imagery as well as his largest work to date (seen above). Rounding out the show were a series of drawings / studies, sculptural works, some important older pieces, and an intricate diorama with moving parts (see video below).
For those interested, the painting above (The Parlor) will be available as a print today starting at 8 pm PST (details here).
