Andrew Ryder

Andrew Ryder states that artists in their work externalise something in themselves, and he believes he does this with his kinetic work to varying degrees. Art practice is a continuing evolution, and there is never a final absolute moment. There are high points, disasters, mistakes and dead ends, but never a finality. His working process begins with a neurotic creative phase that resolves into a physical concept. Art is the reason for making the piece. What “the art” is, is like an answer when you don’t know the question. It resolves for a moment the tension between aspiration, creative isolation and reality.
