Paul Ryan Exhibition at Edwina Corlette Gallery
Artsist Paul Ryan will have his art exhibited in 2019 at Edwina Corlette Gallery. He paints the landscape, it’s not the scenery so much as the forgotten histories of his local area that he seeks to explore. Never straying far from his home base in Thirroul in Wollongong. Ryan finds himself searching for the footprints of the people who came before him. Multi-layered contemplations on the impact of invasion and colonisation, his work examines the damage to natural and social worlds that once existed in the dark, hilly bushland of NSW and the alternative realities that might otherwise have been.
