Ryan Wallace – COOPER COLE, Toronto
Born 1977 in New York City, USA
Ryan Wallace, deeply attuned to contradictions of portraying the 'cosmic' or the 'futuristic', uses the lineage of abstraction to produce paintings, drawings, and sculptures that visually adapt to the recent evolution of human spatial engagement, whether through the virtual space of digital realm, or the theoretical space of the cosmos. His works are not ‘about’ digital or cosmic space, nor are they clear depictions. Instead they imply that spatial conditions are in flux, that both the internal and the external logic of this space should be considered.
