Artist Biography

Born in New York in 1977 Ryan Wallace now lives and works in Brooklyn. Inspired by the crackpot as well as the genius, Ryan creates atmospheric work that draws influence from physics, cognitive sciences and ideas such as the Omega Point or Singularity. Embracing ambiguity with a simultaneous sense of assembly and disintegration Ryan Wallace’s multi-faceted practice truly cultivates a sensuality of surface, texture and tone.
