Ryan Wallace’s Violet Collage

Mist (Timeline) 3 (2011), Ryan Wallace

Another favorite from Pulse, Ryan Wallace’s large violet collage at Morgan Lehman’s booth, led me to do some research on the artist this morning.

I thought the painting/mixed media piece was nicely framed by the white Still Lifes on either side at Pulse, and I loved the subtle variations in tone of the work up close. His materials are really nicely integrated, and the end product very finished and smooth. But…

…his artist statement gave me a terrible case of the giggles:

I am inspired by both the genius and the crackpot, the elegance of the universe and Tron.

Suddenly all I could think of was Charlie Sheen.
