Ryan Gander Bio

About The Artist

An artist whose mixed media work is highly conceptual and who constantly challenges himself to work with a wide range of materials, Ryan Gander also challenges his viewer to engage with his environments instead of playing the "lazy spectator." Often compared to a storyteller, Gander creates evocative installations consisting of photography, sculpture, drawing, and film. Many times, the installations consist of minimal objects that convey a partial narrative containing both fictional and nonfictional elements. The contemporary art viewer traveling through Gander's intriguing exhibition spaces has no choice but to fill in the blanks. The enigmatic visual and sensual experiences reflect the artist's belief in "life being a variety of experiences, and living your life in a way that you don't know what's going to happen."
