Ryan Bown is obsessed with both constructing and deconstructing the act of painting. It is a precocious preoccupation for such a young artist. Comprised of densely placed hand painted Q-tips, Bown’s paintings act as a visual record to cells in movement. Like great optical art, Bown’s paintings question the inherent staid quality of painting; it is possible that the Q-tip cells are in constant movement that is undetected by the human eye. Bown’s intermingling of imagery and materiality through a systemic obsessiveness is exhiting and dynamic. Daneyal Mahmood and Erica Love, Kashya Hildebrand Gallery, New York, New York.
