Ryan presents an installation incorporating furniture, glassware, lighting and drawings to present his site as an old and derelict sitting room that has been discovered in the midst of renovation. A snapshot moment that is creation of his own imagination ironically set within the midst of the real renovations.
Ryan studied at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, and the Alberta College of Art and Design. His exhibitions include â€œLooking Forwardâ€ at The McMaster Museum of Art in Hamilton, Ontario, 2000-01; â€œA Faculty of Wonderâ€ at The Marion Nicoll Gallery, Calgary, Alberta, 2002; and â€œPiano Worksâ€ at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario, 2003. Ryan is currently teaching sculpture in the glass department at Sheridan College.
