David Ryan established his reputation with his bas-reliefs composed of monochromatic panels, combined by superimposed layers with dynamic compositions, and refined unexpected color arrangement.
The pulled paint of new works becomes the captured gesture which informs every layer building out to the ultimate defining edge. Compared with dynamic and powerful large works shown in his last exhibition in 2014 at Galerie Richard, New York, new works are quite small, with thiner layers of PVC which contribute to create an intimate connection between the viewer and the work.
David Ryan, born in 1971 lives and works in Las Vegas. He received BFA at Texas University, Austin and MFA at Nevada University, Las Vegas. His works are in the collections of Contemporary Art Museum of San Diego, Museum of Palm Springs, Las Vegas Museum, Weissman Foundation, Los Angeles, Borusan Center of Arts and Culture, Istanbul.
The opening reception will take place from 5-9pm on May 23. For additional images or information about the artist, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
