Ryan McClure is an artist, woodworker and designer working in Portland, Oregon. His work has been exhibited throughout the West and Midwest with works in numerous private and public collections in Illinois, Connecticut, Oregon and California. He received his MA from Eastern Illinois University.
His current work explores the human relationship to the microscopic, to the cosmic and to what we see at eye-level. His marks are exact, placed to create the most accurate representation of an existence outside our daily experience. Some marks become jumbled, stacked one on top of each other and lost. Others are grouped to maximize their individual presence in the composition. His tactile works are a muted chaos, tempting one to reach out and touch, creating a tension in the viewer.
