Ryan McGinness's spyrograph-inspired Dark Energy is certainly energetic, but definitely not dark. The extra large work (60" x 40") is a feat of precision and stitching—a kaleidoscope of multicolored whorled spirals and flourishes. We can't help wondering how many different screens were burned and pulls necessary to make this colossal work.

And finally, Kenny Scharf's buoyant piece— complete with 3D goofy kitsch—follows suit. His large print is replete with layered details of iconography of the 50s and 60s. A nice list of printmaking methods is included on Pace's website.
