Nicole Ryan

De formation académique, Nicole Ryan puise néanmoins, sans compromis, son inspiration dans ses racines irlandaises et bretonnes. Son installation en Bretagne, terre d’eau, de mythes et de mégalithes, a libéré avec force l’expression de ses couleurs vibrantes. Laissant derrière elle la figuration pure, son travail s’est alors résolument métamorphosé : fluide et féminin, mais chargé d’énergie, il révèle une recherche constante de ce qu’elle a baptisé « La Résonance Chromatique ». Il est construit et éclairé par la fusion d’une grande palette de techniques anciennes et modernes.

Nicole’s Irish and Breton origins have always been a strong influence in her work, which, despite her formal artistic training clearly reflects her Celtic roots. Nicole’s move to Brittany, land of water, myths and megaliths brought about a sudden and unexpected metamorphosis in her work. That which had been primarily figurative took on a far more abstract form. Nicole’s work displays her constant quest for what she has dubbed “Chromatic Resonnance”, (a vibratory effect between juxtaposed colours). Emerging from deep within, her work is both resolutely fluid and feminine, a forceful explosion of vibrant colours. It is also the mariage of her grasp of ‘old master’ techniques, coupled with a natural curiosity for modern methods and materials.
