Doyle uses the road trip—a pillar of American mythology—as a point of entry to his work in order to question the persistence of Rugged Individualism as the fabric of our national identity. Through a series of mechanical miniatures, theatrical scenery, and satirical prop-like denim works, the artist foregrounds the dangers of nostalgia and our evolving relationship to consumerism. Paved Paradise marks Doyle’s first solo exhibition in Reyes | Finn’s Detroit gallery space, following solo presentations with the gallery for Condo New York 2019 and NADA Miami 2019.

Paved Paradise is accompanied by a two-person exhibition by Mike Cloud and John Riepenhoff, on view from January 10–February 22, 2020 at Reyes Finn Gallery in Detroit, MI.
