From October 6-31, 2017, New City Arts presents Improbable Figures, a series of chiaroscuro collages by Lisa Ryan.
The Improbable Figures series attempts to reconcile aesthetic and conceptual dualities through the use of black and white, light and dark, intimacy and detachment, recognition and mystery.
MEET THE ARTIST
Lisa Ryan is a collage artist and illustrator who has created for YouTube, Esquire, Paste Quarterly and The Mockingbird. Her analog process—collecting source materials, cutting paper—is one of discovery, an intuitive response to color, form and subject. Her work explores themes of duality and balance within aesthetically minimal compositions.
