Ryan Wight


MFA Student

Major: Sculpture

Graduation Year: 2023

Artist Statement:

My artwork concerns the complex structures inherent to humanity’s shared spaces. I often look to concepts and imagery based on environmental response and biologic systems to feed my work. Projects take their shape through introspection, observational studies, and material investigation with goals set for transmutation.
