Blacklight Nudie Cards
By Ryan McGinness
A collaboration with The Standard Hotel Los Angeles (2011)
The Blacklight Nudie Cards, the first of their kind and graphically tied to the Women Blacklight Paintings and installations, are a full deck of poker-sized playing cards designed by McGinness and based on vintage nudie cards.
The cards are best enjoyed under blacklights that emit only a frequency in the invisible range of 350-370 nm. The fluorescent inks used in the printing of these cards absorb this ultraviolet light and then re-emit it almost instantaneously.
Open edition of decks of playing cards, an extension of the Women Blacklight paintings and installations
Each card in the deck of 56 has a unique face designed by the artist; the reverse side of each card is one of McGinness’s “black hole” paintings
Printed front and back in fluorescent yellow, pink, blue and black
Size: Classic poker, 3.5 x 2.5 in
