Ryan Reynolds received an MFA in art practice from the University of California, Berkeley in 2003. Before that, he studied at University of California, Santa Cruz. His paintings document places he has an established relationship with. This painting explores the theme of continuum and conveys the concept of time, space, and a sense of place. Ryan chooses to paint the places along the periphery of public spaces—footpaths, freeways, parks, or street corners. He makes paintings that capture the process of the visual experience. This includes the immediacy of seeing and also the changes that occur to our collective impressions over the years.

Through the process of observation and recording, Ryan focuses on the elements of time, space, and light as seen in a changing shadow, a ship unloading cargo, a moving person, or a sky set against the more permanent objects of the built and natural environment.
