Funky dream is a picture inside my head of what I find attractive… I have tried to place the natural forms where I think they look perfect… Where I can… I’ll have everything perfect in my mind in colour and form. I believe Artists are always striving to find perfection in visual aesthetics. The interesting thing of course! … Is it perfect? No, that depends on your mind.
Ryan has been working in the medium of collage for the past ten years and specialises in botanical and conceptual collage and abstract painting driven by a love for nature. Ryan’s art searches for beauty in unusual places and he encourages the viewer to listen to the colours in his paintings and to get lost in the textures and forms and ‘listen’ to their inner sounds. Ryan often questions happiness and contentment and still maintains that the key to long-term happiness is mindfulness and that ultimate peace of mind can only come from time spent in nature and appreciating its beauty.
