Anne Ryan is a contemporary artist creating highly coloured, constructed paintings that focus on figures engaged in a variety of activities – her subjects dance, party, pose and generally indulge themselves in scenarios that draw on diverse sources from visual culture and the world around her.

About

Ryan has said: ‘I’m interested in the marginal, the minor, that’s where there might be something still to say or leave unsaid in painting.’ Accordingly Ryan might be inspired as much by imagery of indie rock gigs and popular cinema as by classical figurative painting and sculpture. Ryan is creating new work for this major exhibition at Hastings Contemporary, using materials and processes that have been developed during the past few years including her ‘cutouts’ – sculptural painted works made from card, collage, canvas, ceramic and metal.

Born in Limerick, Ireland, Ryan studied at Limerick School of Art and Birmingham University and was Abbey Fellow in Painting at the British School at Rome in 2016. She has taught at a number of leading UK art schools and exhibited work at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, CAPC Bordeaux and Kunstlerhaus Mousonturm, Frankfurt.  Anne lives and works in London and is represented by greengrassi Gallery.
