The new 'Trophies' exhibit by Ryan McGinness that showcases a number of his pieces of art from his 'Women' series. At first glance, 'Trophies' by Ryan McGinness appears to be images, paintings and sculptures of Greek men, but upon closer examination, the stunning gold installations are unique representations of the female body.

The exhibit features sculptures of "deconstructed figures that have been recombined to create gold-painted aluminum sculptures in the image of the female form" that are surrounded by a variety of similarly shaped gold paintings on the walls. The exhibit by Ryan McGinness has a historic quality due to the way the women are presented as well as a modern feel as a result of the exhibit's use of only of one color. The exhibit is available to the public at Prism gallery in Hollywood, California.
