Make sure you stop by Paul Kasmin this Thursday for Will Ryman’s first exhibition with the gallery, “Anyone and No One.” The show offers two large installations and is spread across the gallery’s two locations: sure to be quite the spectacle!
We visited Mr. Ryman’s studio late last year to preview the work in this show.
Mr. Ryman's 12-foot-tall sculpture Bird will inhabit the gallery's West 27th Street space, formerly the home of Bungalow 8.
As you may be able to tell, the sculpture is loosely inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven."
Man and 'Everyman'
Out on 10th Avenue, Mr. Ryman will install his Everyman statue, a massive piece that curves around the two rooms of that gallery.
Much of the Everyman statue uses household or D.I.Y. materials. Seen here: a hand made of bottle caps.
Brushes on the Brain
Inside the brain of the Everyman is a canyon-like construction of paint brushes.
In case we didn't mention, Bird is constructed of nails of various lengths.
Jeans of the 'Everyman'
Here's Everyman's jeans, made of denim. His shirt is made of destroyed, flattened work boots.
