Talk Description

Anne Ryan’s work is constantly playful and surprising, as she mixes up a wide range of materials and cultural influences into her ‘cutout’ constructions. Sitting somewhere between painting and sculpture, her constructions incorporate multifaceted 3D collages, with intersecting 2D planes, and are often installed in groupings which reveal connections between different pieces. Fragments of narrative leap from one work to another and as you walk around them the pieces appear to shift in tone when seen from different angles, creating a varied and intuitively interactive viewing experience. They create complex, interconnected spaces which can hold contradictions. Drawing is central to the processes in her work.
