Uniting Ryan McNamara’s sculptural practice with his performance art, this work features a photographic collage arranged across five conjoined and angled ceramic vases. The pictures themselves, taken from McNamara’s performances, are overlaid with green, yellow, blue, and pink tones, which provide a subtle, yet distinct contrast against the vases’ marbled grey exterior.

About Ryan McNamara

Ryan McNamara (American, b. 1979) is a Brooklyn based painter, sculptor, collage, and performance artist. Heavily influenced by the MTV music videos he grew up watching, McNamara is known for situation-specific works involving the participation of viewers, professional dancers, and other artists. In early 2012, "Still," his first solo exhibition, mandated that visitors pose for photos while donning unusual costumes and enacting stills from performances, an inversion of the typical artist/performer relationship. In the second phase of the exhibition, he displayed the photographs decoupaged on the objects, backdrops, and costumes used in the performances.
