Blending together art historical themes, styles, and movements with a unique sense of deadpan humor, Ryan Mosley's paintings exist as contemporary tragicomedy. Mosely works through a spontaneous process, eschewing sketches and blueprints in favor of expressive brushstrokes and instinctual fields of color, resulting in scenes that reverberate with immediacy. Typically working to render trippy theatrical spaces filled with a carnivalesque juxtaposition of whimsy and melancholy, we have collaborated with Mosley to publish a print edition of Spotted Pyjamas, a focused portrait of an imagined character reminiscent of iconographic Byzantine motifs with a knowing wink. As Jennifer Higgie writes in Frieze Magazine, "Comedy -- dark, light, and in-between -- is never far off. Many of these paintings are like cartoons without a punchline and none the less for it."
Framing option is white or black painted wood, 7/8” wide flat face and 7/8” deep, with UV acrylic glass.
