Through her abstract expressionist paintings, Australian artist Vida Ryan delves into the intuitive aspect of life and how it unfolds from one moment to the next. With a distinct use of color, texture, and line that translates into a freedom of form and composition, Ryan is able to penetrate the unexplored territory of the inner self, bringing out “the unconscious expression that one feels living in the world today.” The free nature of Ryan’s paintings is a product of her approach, in which she embraces each canvas with an open mind, allowing the secret language of her intuition to be channeled through the brush and expressed in abstract form.

Inspired by the works of the Impressionists, much of Ryan’s work is reflective in nature, where forms give way to softer blends of colors that invite a sense of calm and meditation. Other works seek to explore the cultural diversity of her Australian homeland, infusing geometric forms and distinct lines into compositions that demonstrate the beauty that’s possible in the intersection of cultures.

Vida Ryan currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
