Ryan McLennan’s Cost of Comfort

Richmond, VA based artist Ryan McLennan has recently teamed up with Triple Stamp Press to produce what looks like a stunning twenty print portfolio set. McLennan, who won this year's West Prize (former finalists include Kevin Cyr and Thomas Doyle), has compiled a selection of his twenty favorite paintings from the past three years, with the intent of offering an affordable representation of the artist's evolution as McLennan gains in both popularity and price.

Often times contemplating the violence and survival needs of the natural world, ecological devastation, and unadulterated decadence, "Cost of Comfort" practices what is preached by using a bevy of recycled and eco friendly components in it's production, view some process pictures as well as a couple of the print images after the jump.
