New York Times Review of Anne Ryan Show


On VIEW  THROUGH Saturday, NOVEMBER 19, 2011

In The New York Times review of November 4, 2011, Roberta Smith wrote:
(Ryan’s) subjects include bathers, reclining nudes, still lifes and juggling clowns. Most are implicitly nocturnal, which is especially effective in stark images of apartment buildings and in two examples of “The Argument.” Here two scrawled figures confront each other against a cragged, gray background that, suggesting an urban wall, recasts them as giant graffiti. These are physically obstreperous works, shot through with unsettling emotions.
