Donald Sultan: THE NATURE OF THINGS
Sep 08 - Oct 22 2022 - 20 days left
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce Donald Sultan: THE NATURE OF THINGS, an exhibition of new works by the acclaimed artist. The eight paintings and four drawings included in this exhibition are a continuation of Sultan’s ongoing investigation of abstraction using the aesthetic structure of the mimosa plant. The Mimosa series debuted at RYAN LEE in 2019. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Thomas Loughman.
George Miyasaki: Deep Space
Oct 29 - Dec 23 2022
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce George Miyasaki: Deep Space (1981-1989), an exhibition of Miyasaki’s paintings produced in the 1980s. This was a highly successful decade for the artist during which he exhibited widely throughout the West Coast. The five paintings and two works on paper on view at the gallery reflect the artist’s mature artistic style, in which he uses thickly built-up surfaces and collaged papers to achieve weighty yet contemplative compositions that effortlessly capture the delicate and structured.
George Nelson Preston: Afro Atlantica
Oct 29 - Nov 26 2022
RYAN LEE Gallery is pleased to present Afro Atlantica: The Aqueous Continent, a presentation of works by George Nelson Preston. The five paintings and one work on paper on view are reflections on the Middle Passage. These recent works, made between 2016 and 2022, continue to explore Preston’s longstanding interest in the power of memory, the emotional context of historical trauma, and the complicated inheritance of the African diaspora and “our double consciousness” throughout the Americas as well as Preston’s own family legacy.
