We are pleased to present Renee McGinnis “Of Rust and Men” new paintings.  This will be her first solo show with Zg Gallery.

McGinnis states “with a precise hand, I paint aging, rusted megastructures surrounded by lush botanicals or precious stones of a misdirected beauty, suggesting man’s infallible desire to control nature and his surroundings.  The once luxurious ocean liners, the highly sexualized iron ore uploaders and Battersea Power Stations are staged in deceptively beautiful gardens or stricken on turbulent seas.  The purity of the water, clouds and flora, juxtaposed with these decaying structures, create a potent marriage of emotions where the viewer can choose to engage in the monument of human labor or take in the serene beauty enveloping it.”

Accompanying the larger works in this exhibition will be a series of seventeen small tondos lining the main wall of the gallery, like portholes of a great ship.  Each 3 3/4" painting offers an intimate, pristine view of our natural world of clouds, storms, marine animals and plant life, each devoid of any trace of man.

Renee McGinnis is a Chicago artist who received her B.F.A. from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL.  She has exhibited in  Los Angeles, New York, and Germany and throughout the Midwest. She has been reviewed by the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Reader and Hi-Fructose Magazine. Renee McGinnis “Of Rust and Men” is on view from January 5 to February 24, 2018.
