New York, New York

Rachael Ryan, a New York City based artist, has a creative energy enriched by the beauty and complexities of the many people and places around her. In her paintings, each figure has a quiet power and dignity about them. The various positions of the bodies and playfulness of color draw out expressions and distinctions in the figures. Each one of her works, ranging from abstract to figurative, carries a unique style that is faithful to the depth and personality of each individual. Her technique, brushstrokes, and medium can range to express the individualized strength of each of her figures. This agility of style reflects the variance of her New York City surroundings. In looking at her paintings from far away, the outlines create an element of simplicity, but from close up the paint is textured and intricate.
