Intriguingly we are given no back-story to Ryder, the epitomist of enchantment, but this gives us the freedom to form our own opinions on this artist's work without the heavy weight of preconception. As we wander through this magical world, shrouded in mystery, it is the art which becomes the narrator, rather than the creator of the work.
‘Artist’: an all-encompassing term that wraps many a discipline up in a cultural blanket of human expression and progress. Occasionally, an individual emerges that blurs the lines between these disciplines, breathing narrative into visual art and illustration into the twists and turns of fictional writing. Ryder is one such artist.
