Banks Boys Gallery, a new gallery focusing on contemporary pop-up exhibitions and special projects is proud to announce a solo exhibition by artist Ray Geary. Featuring all-new resin paintings and sculptures, “Summer’s Over” will take place at Banks Boys located at 2 Rivington Street in New York City from 4-9 September 2018. This will be Geary’s first solo exhibition in New York.

Ray Geary continues in the view of resin captures but on a much grander scale. While he enjoys the directness that comes from resin sculptures, he is also invested in the process of reinvention. By creating spill techniques that flow from the encapsulated, Geary has extended his body of work through reinvention and experience.

Geary is drawn to the sort of sculptural impasse presented by the material and connotational conflicts utilizing pop items such as inflatables and pills which blend lines and stretch agglomerations of form while housing each in translucent and suspended entropy. Geary’s work is simultaneously pluralistic and conceptual, extending and interrupting modernist formalism while assimilating the ironies and contradictions of play.

Geary showed no interest in art at an early age, yet was drawn to it post-college as a way to create the things he wanted to see. Comprised mostly of cast resin sculpture, his work deals with encapsulation and unexpected elevation of commonplace items. A young New York talent, Geary’s work has been featured at Scope NYC and Miami, Helium Cowboy in Hamburg and Shizaru Gallery in London. Works for sale are available through the Whitney Museum Shop, The Guggenheim Museum Shop, The New Museum Shop, Parlor Gallery in Absury Park and through his website.
