Artist Statement:

My work draws from personal experiences and focused research to explore relationships between remote environmental systems. I aim to create unique assemblages that emphasize the movement and flow of interacting forces within nature and technology. Sculpture, photography, and film are used to manipulate the movement of materials as they mesh together creating potential for transformative change. Given the current environmental crisis my research takes on added significance as it underscores the need for greater ecological awareness and balance.


Ryan received his MFA from Maine College of Art & Design and his BFA from the University of Southern Maine. He has furthered his artistic development through attending opportunities such as the SÍM residency in Reykjavik, Iceland and the Monhegan Artist Residency located on a remote island in Maine.
