Ryan McGinness Black Light Nudie Cards
Ryan McGinness has just released a full, poker-sized deck of blacklight cards based on vintage nudie cards. They feature McGinness’s graphic, iconic drawings developed from figure studies of various models. McGinness says, “My use of fluorescent paint under the blacklight color spectrum is a strategy to force a singular time/space experience with the work. That is to say, the work must be experienced in person, and cannot be fully appreciated through reproductions via jpegs or printed catalogue pages.”
The deck of cards, produced exclusively for the Standard Hotel, are available now for $35 at the Standard’s Shop.
