Ryan Bown is obsessed with both constructing and
deconstructing the act of painting. It is a precocious preoccupation for
such a young artist. Comprised of densely placed hand painted Q-tips,
Bown’s paintings act as a visual record to cells in movement. Like great
optical art, Bown’s paintings question the inherent staid quality of
painting; it is possible that the Q-tip cells are in constant movement
that is undetected by the human eye. Bown’s intermingling of imagery and
materiality through a systemic obsessiveness is exhiting and dynamic.
