Douglas Tausik Ryder

Smooth and sensual, Douglas Tausik Ryder’s bronze and wood large-scale sculptures recreate traditional forms through the use of modern digital techniques, which the artist taught himself. Using geometric shapes, his pieces involve us in their symmetry, drawing the eye into complex patterns that are precisely wrought. The flowing curves of his work seduce and resonate. There is a softness to each piece that evokes the fecundity of nature, the flow of water, the genesis of birth.

Ryder’s “Venus Installation” was inspired by his wife’s pregnancy. The artist states “… this piece came out a little differently, a personal narrative, thought and emotion united.” “Shadow” reminds us of a seed about to sprout; “Myth of Freedom: Miracles,” appears like a goddess, writhing and frozen in time. The artist acknowledges that the inspiration for his shapes comes from dreams. Viewers will find themselves immersed in the dream-like quality of these rich abstract shapes.
