Ryan's a graduate most recently of Northwestern University. Here's a bit form his bio: "In his recent work, Ryan draws upon imagery from his travels and his native midwestern surroundings and mixes it with a graphic sensibility. His prints & paintings explore ideas of reduction and stylistic juxtaposition that work together to create an environment driven by mood." The result? Detailed, fully present character in open space - which when you think about it is everyone's experience of every fresh day.
