Cordy Ryman

A sense of humor and playfulness is at the heart of Cordy Ryman’s constructed creations. Like the artist himself, his work is unpretentious, thoughtful and sincere. Created using materials normally associated with construction, such as 2 x 4s, metal brackets, plywood, particleboard and florescent paint, they self-consciously refer to their own status as constructed objects.

Ryman doesn’t see abstraction as rigid or conceptual, but rather as an organic and free-flowing force. He strives to create work that is full of life, and builds each piece by responding to what already exists within it. Allowing the process to dictate the direction and evolution of the work, he accepts and “goes with what is there to make something happen.”
