Cordy Ryman moves between painting and sculpture in his artistic work, employing wood and other used materials as his medium. Frequently resurrecting materials from past installations, the artist saws and paints the components, and then arranges them into whimsical geometric objects and reliefs, the characteristics of individual pieces driving multiple transformations.
We present a comprehensive overview of Ryman’s work with 40 exponents, a selection comprising small and three-dimensional wall pieces that captures the playful spirit of renewal and reuse that drives Ryman and his projects.
