Cordy Ryman: Chimera 45
33 Bleecker Street
Caught between sculpture and painting, Ryman’s artwork is characterized by recycled wood, metal, cardboard, scrap metals, acrylic and enamel paints and other found objects. When working with wood, he often keeps the rough jagged edges visible. This creates a very tactile surface which reveals a tight connection to the human hand. Ryman alters the surfaces of his artwork to change the appearance but still allows for the character of the materials to be recognized.
