Mythical Creatures.

Devotional Machines.


All of Ryan’s large scale pieces so far have involved fire and/or light. Enclosures for wood fire, sculptural elements that are consumed by flames and pressurized propane flame effects are used to bring the sculptures to life, expose inner forms and messages and cast light and heat on the observer. Fire creates a performance aspect, ties the piece to external participants, ages and transforms a work and can serve as a climax, or the culmination of a work of art.
