The immediacy of drawing
>> An invitation to join Ryan Price at Ingram Gallery Opening reception: 2pm-4pm Saturday, October 13th
The new works of Ryan Price
are varied in their scale and subject matter; they are joined in their absolute desirability. With little works on drywall framed up beautifully to large scale works, each shares in an exhilarating style of vivid mark making. Ryan Price puts pencil to drywall enabling the viewer a look through a subconscious lens into a shared and co-created world."I've always thought of art as an interaction between two people - the artist who made the piece and the viewer who looks at it. I don't like getting in between."
Price's studio is replete with the tools to shape his art. With a new joiner, his planer and other woodworking tools right at hand --- Price sets out to shape and create in a most intuitive manner. Price's deft hand pairs constructionist elements with his wickedly wonderful lines, taking us from the moment of inspiration and through the steps of creation. Price's unique characters and sophisticated hints at narratives, invite us to further explore, at times reminding us of his signature sound bite: "we humans are an odd bunch"."Some people see the dark side, other people see the humourous side"
Price says of his work. "I just think that as people we're really strange, and I have fun exploring that.
With the continued success of his public gallery group and solo exhibitions, along with his involvement in the arts community of his hometown Guelph, Ontario, Price's career continues to take great shape. Many Ryan Price collectors
would recall Price's 2006 launch at the gallery of The Raven
(Edgar Allan Poe / Kids Can Press) illustrated with his rich and delicate drypoint engravings. It is exciting to think about what lies ahead for this talented and dedicated Canadian artist, with numerous exhibitions and superb innovations under his belt.
