Somewhere between the softness of watercolors and the rigidity of line work exists the art of Ryan Keene. Originally a large-scale installation artist, health problems brought Ryan back to paper, paint, and pen. In his work you will find familiar subjects of field and stream, but the mixed media gives it a sense of movement and anticipation that’s a far cry from more traditional sporting art. The clear juxtaposition of watercolor and pen draws the eye to every fish, fly, and bird. The more modern elements of spatter and drawn circles highlight the underlying paint work in an almost asymmetric, playful dialogue. From his art, Ryan sees our world in a way most of us can’t, but wish we could. Find more of Ryan’s work at rakart.net.
