Paul Ryan is among Australia s most celebrated contemporary artists. He is a thirteen-time Archibald Prize finalist and a finalist and recipient of many other prestigious awards. He is represented in several public and regional art collections including Artbank and the Art Gallery of NSW, as well as numerous corporate and private collections in Australia and abroad.
"His beloved vision of the rugged coastline of Thirroul, south of Sydney, where pacific breakers meet the monolithic escarpment—is the stage from which he plays out his visual commentary on Australian history. Rendered in swathes of viscous oil paint, it is work that has become synonymous with the best of expressive contemporary Australian painting.
"Ryan places us in the seascape/landscape, the beauty of a sun-drenched day—the moments of trepidation as the storm approaches from the inky Pacific Ocean. We are involved in this place; it is not a passive experience to look at his work. Structured formal composition collides with organised accidents of painting fate. Ryan is an artist who knows his practice and who restlessly pushes at its boundaries—never afraid to toy with the accepted norms of how a painting is made." (Ralph Hobbs, 2017).
Paintings by Paul Ryan are a desirable addition to emergent and sophisticated collections of Australian and International contemporary art. Contact us for more information about this outstanding opportunity to become the custodian of this powerful and highly collectable work of art.
