Ryan Farrell Art

The absolute root of my art is making something dynamic out of something that would otherwise be considered waste. My sculptural objects and interactive installations aim to manifest a dialogue both within and between viewers regarding the sometimes-self-destructive nature of contemporary society. Rather than burden the viewer with depressive ideas I aim to juxtapose these inescapable catastrophic perils that we have created for ourselves with humor, and a sense of play. I use reclaimed and found materials that could be considered to have a sense of nostalgia for a wide audience, and that nostalgia is the unifying element to act as a catalyst for change and therefore hope. For myself, Art is hope.
