CURRENT EXHIBITION by TALIA RYAN
Self and Sustenance
December 5th - December 28th, 2019
Opening Reception Friday 12/6 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Talia Ryan, a Buffalo-born and Buffalo-based painter and printmaker, has been developing her craft at Nazareth College for the past five years, where she exhibited her work annually and completed a masters in art education. Upon achieving certification in her field, she threw herself back into the arms of the Queen City as quickly as possible, returning to the place that had continued to exert an influence over her work in the years she was away. Talia continues to focus her studio practice on traditional printmaking techniques, ranging from relief to intaglio. She also dedicates time to work in other media, including oils, pottery, metals, and fibers, as well as film photography. Her teaching practice centers on the high school students of Buffalo Academy of Science. Follow her studio work at @talia.ryan.art.
Talia’s work in printmaking primarily explores devotion and worship, sustenance and spiritualism, and the interiority of female experience. The work in this show, “Self and Sustenance,” takes cues from myth and internal reflection, architectural ruins, and the artists of the Vienna Secession. Mixed in with fantastic imagery are a lively selection of more outward-looking prints taking their subject matter from the artist's hometown of Buffalo and the people who color her life there.
