3:33 Art Projects - Paul Ryan - New Exhibition

Paul Ryan In Studio 2020 16X9

Paul Ryan’s thick, impasto landscapes re-imagine a time when places such as Wollongong were pristine and pure.

These pre-colonised landscapes, almost always the NSW South Coast, are butted against figures of post-colonial narratives. 3:33 Art Projects (an RJ Office partner), along with James Makin Gallery, has the pleasure to present these recent paintings from Paul Ryan in collaboration with the Clayton Utz Art Partnership.

Ryan’s thick, expressive style has seen him selected a finalist in the Archibald prize fourteen times, and also selected as a finalist in the Wynne Prize four times and seven times in the Sulman. Most recently, he was a finalist in the 2019 Archibald and Sulman prizes. Ryan won the Geelong Contemporary Art Prize in 2012, and the Paddington Art Prize in 2007 and 2010. Ryan was a finalist in the 2018 Mosman Prize and the 2018 Doug Moran Prize Ryan’s work is held in many significant collections including The Geelong Gallery; Artbank; Lismore Regional Gallery; Woolongong Regional Art Gallery; Mosman Art Gallery; Woolongong University Collection; The Manly Art Gallery and many private and corporate collections nationally and internationally.
