Openings: Ryan McLennan – “Fabrications” @ David B. Smith Gallery

Last Friday was the opening night of Ryan McLennan’s newest show Fabrications at the David B. Smith Gallery in Denver. The 2011 Western Award Winner spent the last 12 months channeling the cinema of filmmakers like Guy Madden and Andrei Tarkovsky for the inspiration to create the 20 piece show which will be on display until October 5th. Fans of Ryan’s would call this a departure from the work of his last several shows, swapping his signature animals and limited outdoors landscapes for empty, foreboding […]

With his new body of work, Abominations (previewed), McLennan takes a look at the animal kingdom through his unique eyes and creates instances that often reflect and draw parallels to human situations. We liked the raw emotions coming out of his animal friends and the also the interesting use of black backgrounds as opposed to the white that we are used to seeing from him. This show runs until November 19th […]
