ABOUT THE ARTIST
Robert Ryan has developed exceptional art, the results of which are truly stunning. A crucible of light, translucent colours and vibrant shapes breathe a life of its own and constantly changes. The precise method of his craft is a well guarded secret but the process starts not with a blank canvas but with clear, blank glass and a shard of an idea. Ryan does everything artists would normally do in reverse. Instead of painting the images then framing it in glass, the glass front is the canvas. Multiple layers of minerals, crushed gem stones, metal work, paint and a great deal of imagination are applied, the idea of which is only evident in Ryan’s head – the result of which is often not all that it seems. Each piece is unique and presents any owner of his work with a challenge to make up his or her own mind as to the story, if any, trapped in the pane.
