Spring Blossom 2018: Artist Talk Ryan Mosley
Ryan Mosley (b.1980, Chesterfield, UK), lives in Sheffield
British artist Ryan Mosley paints freely and unabashedly from his imagination. His brushstrokes are expressive and gestural, giving the feeling that the fantastical characters that parade across his paintings have simply stepped out of their own psychedelic world and onto the canvas. His technicoloured palette only adds to this hallucinatory effect; bright stains of neon pink or incandescent orange often pulsate beside shadowy swathes of aubergine purples. Art historical and literary motifs frequently inform the merry assortment of characters threaded through Mosley’s paintings. The artist is represented by Alison Jacques Gallery (London), Eigen + Art (Berlin/Leipzig), Suzanne Vielmetter Projects (Los Angeles) and Tim Van Laere Gallery (Antwerp), where his works are exhibited regularly.
