Kathryn Ryan's works are built up in meticulous layers of paint and glazes over many months to achieve a depth, luminosity and harmony. Currently living in Dubai, Ryan has begun a new series of work responding to the new environment, sense of place and quality of light in the United Arab Emirates. She has found inspiration observing intimate details in the local environment, with the dramatic play of light and fall of shadows accentuating the organic and sensual nature of plants and Arabic lanterns. This exhibition showcases a new series of charcoals and oil paintings developed from her Dubai studio. The charcoals are built up with layers of mark making and rubbing away, leaving an evocative essence of beauty, mystery, light and shadow.
