OPENING FRIDAY NOVEMBER 1 2019 (7-9PM)

RYAN BROWNING, 20019

Placeholder image

Houston born artist Ryan Browning currently lives & teaches painting at VCU’s campus in Doha, Qatar. Browning’s paintings have a way of simplifying imagery to a cartoonish state without losing the specificity of the objects he is portraying. He draws inspiration from virtual and role playing game worlds, often portraying these imaginary spaces without the presence of figures, as if they have just walked out of frame. In "20019" Browning returns to his Miroesque style of flattened, layered subject matter, painting in both gouache and oil. In this exhibition he also presents objects and carpets that seem to have emerged from the world of his paintings.
