Artist Ryan Scails

Ryan Scails

Brooklyn, NY, USA


American, b. 1987   —   Ryan Scails is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. His work examines the nuances of materiality within the built world and how intentional shifts in details can give humans context in ways that confront the limits of their bodies. Currently, he’s soending his time studying conditional objects and reestablishing them as dressed sculptures that suggest both care and precarity and developing handling instructions that consider the installer an integral component in art viewership. By using fiber to create hyperspecific structural relationships, his recent works highlight the potential resolutions of material conflicts in a manner that leans heavily on the sequential and spiritual harmony of physical labor. His most recent exhibitions include ForGround at Peer to Peer, Los Angeles, CA; High Beams at TSA LA, Los Angeles, CA; Touching Down Lightly at Moonmist, Houston, TX; and a solo show titled Another Now at SARDINE, Brooklyn, NY. This fall, Ryan will be a resident at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center for the Arts/Industry program in Sheboygan, WI.
