In Kathryn Ryan's work, landscapes take on a sensuous resonance. Set in the space between night and day, her scenes are at once bold and subtle - evoking the suggestive poetry of the land. Here, she traces the smokey silhouette of trees at dusk.

The work is expansive, filling the viewers field of vision. Just as Claude Monet's waterlilies transported their beholder to the waters edge, Ryan's From Back Roads invites you for a long walk in the paddock, suffused by the dregs of terror twilight. This is a truly transformative aesthetic experience.

A esteemed contemporary artist, Ryan is the subject of a monograph and was celebrated in 2015 with a major retrospective at The Warrnambool Art Gallery. Dividing her time between the United Arab Emirates and Australia, her bold yet subtle imagery is avidly collected and she is multi-time Wynne Prize finalist.
