“My creative practice is intuitive and process-driven, generated by the found ephemera of my daily experience. The process of collage lies at the foundation of everything I make. The emergent themes I tend to arrive at again and again are all rooted in landscape, where the geometry of the horizon line acts as either a conceptual or physical starting point on the paper. I am interested in the psychological underpinnings within spatial forms and the built environment, and how the configuration of architectural elements can be shaped to personify one’s inner experience. There is a seemingly incessant drive to find grounding and placement in a widely untethered space, be it the concrete terrain beneath our feet or the visceral dwellings of the interior self.”

Ryan Sarah Murphy is a visual artist living and working in New York. Her collage-based work is process-driven and incorporates a multi-disciplined approach through the use of found and repurposed materials. Ryan is a recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship Grant (2014), a Working Artist Grant (2018), and she has held residencies at the I-Park Foundation (East Haddam, CT) and The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions across the US including: ODETTA Gallery (Brooklyn); Platform Gallery (Seattle); Lesley Heller Gallery (NY); Kathryn Markel Fine Arts (NY); Liliana Bloch Gallery (Dallas) and Real Art Ways (Hartford, CT). Ryan’s work has been featured and reviewed in several online and print publications including The New York Times, Artnews, Maake Magazine, Tory Burch Daily, and Embark Magazine. Permanent collections include the Foundation Center (New York) and the Holter Museum of Art (Montana).
