Ryan Whelan

Ryan Whelan uses abstract and element forms as a means for self-confrontation, creating scenes of his inner world. The artist uses texture as color, often building up gestural impasto layers of paint into surfaces that dance with light; the resulting compositions experientially change as the day goes by. For Whelan, paintings are objects that must react to their environment—mirroring the same dynamic our surroundings have on us.
