ABOUT THE WORK
Order of Operations by Ryan McGinness depicts a dream-like scene saturated with art history and skateboarding references that collide with psychedelic imagery. The artist’s surreal symbol drawings are rendered in porcelain-baked enamel, a material McGinness has worked in since 2001. Often used in subways and public signs, porcelain baked enamel on steel is the most durable signage material in the world, making it ideal for any environment and weather condition. The work requires no framing, and hangs flush to the wall on a provided cleat.
