Ryan Held’s paintings draw from the work of master expressionists while evoking a deeper understanding of what it means to move freely in space. Each piece is an uplifting abstraction of the feeling and the freedom of climbing through a three-dimensional space. Since childhood Ryan exercised his creativity through the movement of rock climbing. Now, he translates his love of the vertical world to the canvas. "My main purpose is to provide the viewer with a glimpse into this art of movement in the vertical realm by means of canvas and paint.”
