Ryan Wallace

Born in New York, NY, 1977
Rhode Island School of Design, BFA, 1999
Lives and Works in Brooklyn and East Hampton, NY

RYAN WALLACE’s (b. 1977) mixed media paintings conjure an ethereal space between the material and intangible. Repurposing fragments from earlier and developing pieces, the artist seams, layers, excavates, and manipulates the surface of his work to incorporate a wealth of textures and techniques. By limiting his resources, Wallace has developed a rich process-based practice whereby each body of work leads to the next in terms of materials and composition. Wallace’s work has been exhibited at BAM, Brooklyn; Marjorie Barrick Museum, Las Vegas; and University of the Arts, Philadelphia. His works can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, among others.
