“We must find a way back to nature again to gain inner peace of mind, and cure ourselves of this toxic imagery we see every day”
Ryan, tell us more about you
I am an abstract artist seeking to look through this tangled web of the world to the beauty in the world that connects us.
I have been working in the medium of collage for the past ten years and specialise in botanical, conceptual collage and abstract painting driven by a love for nature. I try to create a sense of natures beauty in my art. But it can only be part of it’s essence because it’s too great! And these are works that most represent my Art.
I wanted to express the nostalgia of carefree days in the sunshine, in nature, with the people we love. Sums up my feeling for creating small utopia moments in these strange COVID times.
I encourage the viewer to listen to the colours in my art and to get lost in the textures and forms and hear their inner sounds.
I think that we must find a way back to nature again to gain inner peace of mind and cure ourselves of this toxic imagery we see every day.
I often question happiness and contentment and I still maintain 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.
In our modern world globalisation blinds us with the invisible threads of industry and economy.
We live in nature and that is our privilege and no matter what all humans are the same, no race is superior. The fact that we are walking on this world is enough and ONE LOVE is showing a man sitting on a thrown of nature (flowers and leaves)
Because it shows us as humans appreciating its beauty, showing nature the respect and love it deserves! We are to nourish it and each other for that matter! ONE LOVE for one, ONE LOVE for all. Tribute to #BLM movement
