Ryan McLennan

Untitled - acrylic on paper- Ryan McLennan - 2007


Oh goodness, it's been far too long since I've posted. I suppose that my flimsy excuse of being in Japan won't really hold any water. In any case, I have been storing up some great posts for Wunderkammer and hope to get rolling on them, despite that fact that I am inflicted with a chronic disease of taking on way more projects than I can manage.

And since I don't have very much time today with all my other projects, the work of artist Ryan McLennan can pretty much speak for its self.

McLennan is an artist from Richmond, Virginia who works mainly in acrylic on paper and sometime on wood. His enigmatic images seem to tell a mysterious story of a battle between forest creatures, with a cast including moose, beavers, foxes and a strange bear made from leaves.

The most interesting picture to me was the one named: "Orphans"..I don't know why but the mooses surrounding the leaf bear ..well they actually don't look a lot like mooses...they look more like some creatures from the Greek myths..I mean just look at the moose in the center-front..it looks like a creature that has a dogs head and a body of a moose or a deer...
