Kathleen Ryan (b. 1984, California, USA) lives and works in New York, USA. Ryan works with cast iron, carved marble, granite and found objects to create sculptures that reference natural forms and industrially manufactured produce. Ryan engages with formal sculptural concerns such as volume, weight, pressure, balance, and line, while subtly alluding to the material’s historical and economic underpinnings, along with frequent references to the human body and classical motifs. Recent exhibitions include The New Art Gallery Walsall, UK (2019); MIT LIST Visual Arts Centre, USA (2019); CC Foundation & Art Centre, China (2018); and Kunsthistorisches Museum, Austria (2017).
