– Sarah Ryan –

By Winter 2011

Sarah Ryan’s photographic imagery is drawn from the unconscious gaps that are created when humans shift their visual attention from one thing to another. Time and movement is therefore prominent in her work, generating subject matter that seems arbitrary in spite of its relative consistency. Ryan’s images appear to have been captured by a photographer in flux; as if created from wandering around her studio or a nearby park, searching not for a conspicuous picture but for a quality of in-betweenness. – Wes Hill
