Ryann Carey Artist Statement

Have you ever looked at a toma­to so long that you feel like you are the tomato?

I strive to paint the rep­re­sen­ta­tion­al world con­verged with the emo­tion­al response that it elic­its.  I don’t seek out places to paint but instead I let my love of obser­va­tion be my inspi­ra­tion to cap­ture a moment on cam­era. Pho­tog­ra­phy was my first love in art.  With my paint­ings, I then rely heav­i­ly on my sense mem­o­ry to por­tray not only what the eye has seen but also the feel­ing that a space and time evoked.

As humans, we are unit­ed by our com­mon expe­ri­ences and our emo­tion­al con­nec­tion to our envi­ron­ment.  My hope is to cre­ate work that con­jures up this com­mon thread among us.
