Hi all — my latest solo exhibition is now up at Mindy Solomon Gallery. I'm elated for having the chance to show with Mindy. Great space, great person. If you're in Miami before the show closes on July 21, please stop by. Oh... and my special lady, Linda Lopez, is also having an exhibition of new works in the front space!
From the press release:
"The exhibition continues McConnell’s long exploration into the persistent problems of invention, originality, and creative influence in art making. Using duplication as a primary tool for exploring these questions, McConnell works directly from images of contemporary art—selecting, stealing, stretching, and manipulating sources—wringing them for inspiration for his idiosyncratic processes. His practice exists in an emphatically tight loop of influence and response, enabled by the connectivity of our digital era. Most important in the sources he chooses is simply the impetus they provide for the production of “new” work. The resulting forms vary between recognizable images, strategies, and tropes commonly found in contemporary art and forms seemingly outside the sources they claim to derive from."
