If you happen to be in New York City between now and May 5, be sure to stop by Pace Primitive to see the newly installed Geometric Primitives exhibition by artist Ryan McGinness. A Virginia Beach native, McGinness grew up within a concentrated surf and beach culture. Despite his seaside upbringing, McGinness has managed to touch upon many classic African tribal motifs via his paintings, sculptures and printed pieces.


The New York-based Pace Primitive space has been used to showcase authentic African and Oceanic creations since 1971. Its entrenched history has been reflected in the organization’s talented list of collaborators, and has as such opened its doors to the brilliant work of McGinness.

McGinness’ Geometric Primitives collection is bright and angular, and is an enticing jumble of all things indigenous. Finding inspiration in tribal masks and ritual symbols he translates ancient imagery into his unique language of screen printed drawings, paintings, and prints.
