Ryan Carlson's Art

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

I wanted to share with you a couple of pieces of art by Ryan Carlson.  I think he is brilliant! This one is currently showing at Red Dot Gallery:


Can you tell from what the sweet little hummingbird is feeding?  His art is not for the squeamish, for sure!

This next piece is in my home.  My husband really likes Ryan's art, so he made a special spot in our foyer for this next piece.  It is suspended on a pipe.  There is no room in our foyer for any furniture, so other than one other picture on a tiny wall, this is all that is in there.  I wonder what that says about us?

Ryan said that this image came to him in a dream.  The luna moth is caught in an ice tong, and another moth is watching.  This piece is made entirely of clay.  I painted the alcove my husband built midnight blue, of course!  Our walls are painted mayonnaise.


Until next time...

  1. I didn't notice that was a heart at first. Fortunately I'm not squimish at all and love it. Your art looks fantastic against that midnight blue colour. I agree he is an amazing artist.

  2. well...right away I recognized the heart but thought I could be mistaken had you not pointed it out. I like it anyway and the other piece too.

  3. ...I think these pieces are really beautiful and full of poetry,thanks for letting me know.Annalisa
