Ryan Hay is an abstract artist, musician, and occasionally a poet. He is a founding member of The Collective Artspace and serves as the Artspace Director.
Ryan's visual work is motivated by the intersection of order and chaos, the role that chance plays in our lives, and the emotionality of pianos. When everything is working right, his materials and intuition guide his process, and painting becomes a means for him to reflect inwardly. The finished product is the result of working through a complicated history of moments, excavating as much beauty as he can along the way.
