I have always loved Kate Ryan’s work and was thrilled when she agreed to sell Giclees of some of her work exclusively at Utilities. The work is so realistic and carries that retro and local feel that we love. This image is 3x9, with frame 5.5x11.5. This is a limited edition giclee print of 50.
MY WORK IS CONTEMPORARY REALISM, STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY ADVERTISEMENT OF THE MIDCENTURY. I AM AT ONCE EMBELLISHING AND MINIMIZING WHAT I SEE, ENHANCING CERTAIN THINGS, WHILE LEAVING OTHER THINGS COMPLETELY OUT. THIS ALLOWS ME TO PAINT WITH AN ABSTRACT APPROACH, EVEN THOUGH I CHOOSE REALISTIC CONTENT. MY HOPE IS TO BREATHE LIFE INTO MY INANIMATE SUBJECTS...PLACES AND OBJECTS OF A TIME PAST, BUT STILL AROUND TODAY.
