With this series of bold colored patterns over black and white landscapes Ryan combines analogue film photography with digital art. This series honors the reality of any one moment in a single space in time; encoded with a narration of symmetrical shapes and color to represent the feelings evoked by that moment. This representation of reality vs. truthful emotion distills how often the two never look and feel the same. These multi-layered pieces take the isolation of experiencing a moment, alone, out of its silent realm by giving it a bold dialogue.
Acrylic on Raw Canvas, Bees Wax Finish
Exploration of color and shape, how it penetrates the eye and informs the space around it. Inspired by the minimalism movement in the early 60’s that is rooted in the reductive aspects of modernism, this series examines geometric abstraction with clean shapes of color on raw canvas.
