Exhibition: 21 June – 25 August 2019
Born in Co. Limerick, Ryan graduated from Limerick School of Art and Design in 1987. In Ireland, Ryan’s work is considered as somewhat unique.
Robert Ryan’s work borrows qualities from old European masters while referencing post-modernism by using traditional characteristics in a modern context. While Ryan’s work is primarily rooted in landscape his work has a broader context exploring allegorical concepts including the infinity of space, solitude and vulnerability.
