RYAN MCGINLEY "OVER LEDGE" 2000
Ryan McGinley's first body of work, which would lead to international acclaim, documented his friends - a crew of artists, skaters and bad boys in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
He depicted the optimism, rebellion and hedonism experienced by friends and lovers in New York City just prior to 9/11.
Skateboards, BMX bikes, naked hijinks and tagging are the motifs that represent these last moments in New York before that destructive day.
While there are several graffiti images in McGinley's oeuvre "Over Ledge" is clearly the strongest - for its wide composition, detail and inherent energy.
Collectors are most interested in McGinley's first body of work that appeared at his Whitney solo show. – "Over Ledge" is a paradigm of his work and his most sought-after period.
