McGinness’ Women series is showcased in this artist-designed catalogue from the exhibition Women: New (Re)Presentations at Quint Contemporary Art in La Jolla, CA. Based on figure drawings from life models, this series captures the essence of beauty in its simplicity of form. He explains, “Two parallel desires drive these new Women drawings: My desire to simplify and iconify the underlying visually logical geometries inherent in my figure drawings in order to better understand my subject matter; and my desire to embrace and capture the purely aesthetic experience of graceful curves and sensual forms inherent in my models.” The book features an essay by Robert Pincus, interview by Brett Littman, and discussion with Hugh Davis. Printed in an edition of 750: 500 signed and numbered by the artist and 250 stamped “HORS DE COMMERCE.”
