Exhibition Review - Ryan Mosley:'Anatomy and the Wall' Alison Jacques Gallery, London till 3rd Mar 2016.

Ryan's big hair is as vital to our entry into his mythology as it is to our return. - Drenched Co.

Comment: " I first saw Ryan's work in Berlin in 2012, and to me, then, as now, Ryan's visual ballads play  "a tune beyond us, yet ourselves" ( see the poem "The Man with the Blue Guitar" by Wallace Stevens). Ryan's tie-dye aesthetics and hirsute cast decreates reality and argues for another perspective made possible through his paint, while suggesting that when the crust of shape has been destroyed, you are yourself again. Through his process poetic, however abstruse his flights, and given the extraordinary prominence of the body (and hair) in his work, we always return home to the body and its anatomy whilst we try in vain to wall out the swelling, trippy abstract." - Raj
