About Sandy Ryan

Artist Statement
Sandy Ryan


My goal as an artist is to create something new and evocative each time I pick up my brush. Iím passionate when creating, completely unaware of my surroundings or the passage of time. I become inspired by a person, a landscape, or a city neighborhood, and then I have it: A mission, a drive, a longing to create.
As a lover of sunny days, Iím often drawn to the depiction of light and shadow. Watercolor, most often, is the medium I choose. I enjoy layering colors adjacent to the intense pristine white of the paper. Other themes, however, seem to demand the use of oils. I find myself reaching for oils when molding my human forms. I savor the experience of blending pigments until they melt into a smooth skin-like sheen.
Women are frequently depicted as sensual in my compositions. I strive to have them convey both strength and self-acceptance. Other works, such as urban cityscapes, entice me to apply my oils more loosely and boldly. Itís the very contradiction of the delicacy of my watercolors.
My work is constantly evolving. The vividness of color and the use of space have become particularly important to me recently. My works have become more abstract and even more symbolic as I seek to continue to tell my storiesÖthrough art.
