Exploring beauty, repulsion and kitsch, Mark Ryden’s first NYC solo exhibit at Paul Kasmin Gallery since 2003 has more of his signature classical painting and macabre fetishism for Abe Lincoln, meat, Jesus and Victorian little ladies miscarrying in pretty gardens. “The Gay 90s: Old Tyme Art Show” (that’s 1890’s) opens today. Meanwhile, see him paint one below. “The Gay 90s: Old Tyme Art Show,” Mark Ryden, Apr 29 – Jun 5, Paul Kasmin Gallery, NYC
