Ryan Sarah Murphy

Ryan Sarah‘s artistic practice generates from a wholly intuitive place, prompted by the materials that come and go freely within her day-to-day experience. As a compulsively overlooked throw-away, the artist is rather interested in the way the simple, abundant and inherently impermanent materials can be structured into quiet surfaces that convey both formation and dilapidation simultaneously. Ryan Sarah’s body of work develops around a series of collages, suggestive of odd terrains, infrastructures and skylines. As a result of a subconscious examination of space, these collages depict both the concrete environment of the city and the interior dwelling of the self. Much like the natural and artificial landscape that we both inhabit and construct, they serve as a tenuous meeting point of architectural and abstract elements.
