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 7x9, with frame 10x12.
Limited edition giclee, numbered and signed.
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.
