Contemporary Women Paint:  Abstract Expressions

January 29 - March 20, 2021

Moberg Gallery -- 211 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50312 


"Conn Ryder’s new acrylic works on canvas: 'Fustercluck,' 'Grin and Bear It,' 'Over the Moon,' 'Sucker Punch,' and 'The Jig is Up,' are celebratory and cathartic. Her work feels gorgeously wild and visceral, with an objective of subjecting one to life, with all its vicissitudes-to activate self and other. Because body, whether subject or not, is all relationship. And mind is mining. And the muscle that beats out everything else, is, without the body/mind unity, simply a contained splatter. But with it, paintings of effusion become strange images of new jacaranda species and pyrotechnics, from up in the tree or inside the work of fire."
