One of the shows we are looking forward to this weekend opens tonight at the Joshua Liner Gallery.  Ryan McLennan’s show in New York will be entitled “The Strain of Inheritance” and deals with ideas of survival in bleak environments as well as the cycle of life an death (a mix of skeletal remains, skulls, dead trees, topiary growths, thriving animals).  Also apparent in his imagery are the complex social interactions among the wildlife and how their fates are all bound together.

For more insight into McLennan’s work, take a look at this interview by our friends at The Art Collector’s Blog and check out more preview images after the jump.
