SOHO20 Chelsea gallery presents RUINLUST, an exhibition of new work by Joan Ryan.
The collection of mixed media drawings including graphite, ink, collage and phototransfers
will be on view through March 23rd.
The impetus for Ryan’s work is what the Naturalists and Romantic Landscape painters
referred to as Ruckenfigur, a figure placed in a sprawling landscape contemplating life’s
quandaries. RUINLUST replaces the human figure in that sense with the discarded objects
from Western culture, specifically the iconic and nostalgic television set.
