Artist Portfolio Magazine – 2017 Q4 Art Competition
It is important to me, that one experiences the emotion of wonder. A moment of experiencing wonder can stimulate curiosity. For it is curiosity that leads us to explore our surroundings.
My name is Ryan Ovsienko. I am a ponderous, creative, adventure seeking individual. As a flaneur, I am inspired to create by exploring my imagination and the environment around me. I crave to cause reflection and trigger the imagination, because everything begins with a dream.
I’m always on a constant journey of looking beyond the surface to discover underlying structures and principles to better understand the world around me. These works are interpretations of the visible and invisible patterns which influence our values, beliefs and actions. They expose the layers to life and experience; along with the multitude of connections which make them up. Pieces are created using components from photographs and improvising to manipulate their forms and color. Each piece takes on a new whole, representative of the different paradigms and frameworks from which one can operate.
