Artist Ryan Pickart blurs the lines between rigid and graceful qualities in his expressive figurative paintings. Ryan draws inspiration from his three older sisters and mother who heavily influence his artwork and creative process. Although he paints from his imagination, there is an essence of his family members breathing through the canvas. Ryan's artwork blends the aspects of what society sees in masculine and feminine beauty. "My goal is for the observer to see themselves in my work. Even if they look drastically different, there always is the same beauty in everyone," says Ryan. In his free time he enjoys the outdoors, skating, gardening, and renovating his home in Lowell, Indiana.

About The Artist
As of late, I have been leaning towards a loose way of painting while still keeping parts of the composition intentionally tight and detailed. I am taking on the task of bridging the gap between abstract and realism. I find enjoyment in the process of each work and continuing to learn and explore different approaches and methods while finding solutions to my studies.
