It’s been many years since Geoff McFetridge has showcased a solo show in Los Angeles, where he’s lived since moving from his hometown of Calgary, Canada. His latest solo exhibition, Return to Stoner Forest, is a way in which the artist looks to reconnect to the early stages of his career, where he remembers making work to mainly share with friends. He’s gone on to showcase around the world since that time, always paving his own artistic lane of distilling complex emotions into recognizable motifs, while collaborating with world-renowned brands, such as Nike and Stüssy, along the way.

Housed at One Trick Pony, just a stones throw from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the exhibition presents a row of totemic figures alongside his signature paper-based illustrations. Emblematic of his career, the illustrative works oscillate between minimal brushstrokes and vibrant color palettes, while on the opposite end, McFetridge continues to show a focus in creating depth and texture to his minimally evocative figures.

“This is the era of Stoner Forests and Yeti which went on to Seattle, Tokyo and Colette in Paris,” wrote the artist via Instagram. “I don’t need to revisit that time but it was fun to make new work that looks back (a bit) to that time… in LA… in an old friends gallery… to share with the actual people who made it all happen back then (and some strangers too),” McFetridge added.

Return to Stoner Forest will be on view at One Trick Pony until March 18.
