CoffeyFlatFile

Efrain Lopez Gallery is proud to present a special collection of small works by artist Ryan Coffey. The collection is the first iteration of the Flat File Initiative, which aims to present original works to an audience beyond the established collector and curator.  In these latest two-dimensional works, the viewer can sense a relentless impulse towards the archival. Each work acts as an experimental iteration- draft-like in their eventual contribution to the process and form of Coffey's large-scale projects. It is through the ensuing conversation with matters of scale and display that these "flat" works begin to engage notions of displaced memories and foregone narratives.
