Jonathan Ryan had a two-person show at the Landing and has appeared in LA-based group exhibitions at Elevator Mondays, The Brand Library, and Gallery ALSO, as well as exhibitions at Field Project in New York and the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia. He has a BFA from Louisiana State University and an MFA from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Ryan began as an observational painter, depicting sunlit buildings and landscapes, but then shifted toward imagined forms. His background in observational painting has provided him with the foundation to use light and shadow in ways that give depth to his geometric, abstract forms. Ryan’s current work is influenced by industrial structures and archaic architecture. He has an ongoing investment in color, materiality, and Modernist form in painting. Ryan was a member artist at Tiger Strikes Asteroid LA from 2014 through 2017. He's based in Los Angeles and is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana.
