lost in your eyes
August 23, 2018 – September 15, 2018
“Jon made some trees they are really good! Ok maybe not making out and feeling up your significant other in the back seat of your parents car to “lost in your eyes” by Debbie Gibson in 1989 good. But pretty fucking close.”
Originally born in Canada (1972), Pylypchuk has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 1998. He studied at the University of Manitoba where he co-founded the artist collective Royal Art Lodge in 1996 alongside Michael Dumontier, Marcel Dzama, Neil Farber, Drue Langlois and Adrian Williams. The group of Canadian artists was bound by their crude aesthetic, outsider status and interest in breaking down the established rules of artistic production. Considered a torchbearer of the Los Angeles art scene and ‘an artist’s artist’ by his compatriots, he has long since hoarded the attention of local enthusiasts before breaking out on the international scene.
Jon Pylypchuk’s works are in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Saatchi Collection, London; the Museum of Old and New Art, Berriedale; the Whitney Museum, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit and the Albright–Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo.
