I paint abandoned spaces that resonate with me. Some paintings are made perceptually, and others from photographs. However, my main focus is finding a means to visually transmit the dominant psychological feeling of a person or place. I am attracted to spaces that possess a residue of occupation, the visceral sensation of a human presence. These structures provide a framework through which I am able to have a conversation about decay, neglect, and what it means to be forgotten.” —Ryan M. Schroeder
Schroeder’s work is currently on display as part of a group show at Art Mora, in New York and New Jersey during the month of December.
