The artwork is created of a weird psychological and surreal imagery, depicting hidden moments in a familiar world.
 

The familiarity of suburbia is something that Ryan placates through her choice of imagery.The absence of life in much of the artwork evokes vast emptiness and creates a window into a familiar dystopian world. Ryan has constructed a mise en scene, that gives the iconography a new and secondary life outside the suburban banality.
 

Ryan uses design techniques to blur the boundaries of urban art, fine art, and design. Her techniques emphasise this interest in the urban, through her choice of imagery. Dystopian landscapes re-envisioned with passion transforming the ugly and banal.


The choices Ryan has made in what she has chosen to create is where I feel the narrative lies, the empty scenes often filled with familiar shapes, this body of work becomes a very personal portrait, insight or a psychological landscape of the artists psyche and creates a modern and innovative way to critique contemporary life with a direct look and a celebration of the banal.
