Will Ryman’s “Everyone and No One” at Paul Kasmin Gallery

21 Mar





Will Ryman is known for his hyper-enlarged sculptures which use manipulate expectations of size and materials to create absurd spaces.


The Manhattan-born artist started off as a playwright who was highly influenced by Absurdist philosophy, but when his plays were not proving to be marketable, he made a fascinating shift.


Ryman told The New York Times: “I wanted to invent a new kind of theater,” he added, “in which actors were removed, and props somehow told the story.” You can hear Ryman on his art on the Leonard Lopate show here.
