Paul Ryan is among Australia’s most sought after contemporary artists. Acclaimed for his distinctive, evocative style, he has recently become known for excavating Australia’s colonial history. In this earlier work however, he applies his gestural brushstrokes to bits of fish. A follower of the ocean, this still-life conjures the textures and fumes of seaside living. Ryan has been likened to a visual novelist and here, as he sets a sumptuous scene of -Fishes and Pineapple- it is not hard to see why.
Ryan is a thirteen-time Archibald Prize finalist and a finalist and recipient of many other prestigious awards. He is represented in many public and regional art collections including Artbank, as well as numerous private collections.
