I Create PHOTOGRAPHY
Self-taught artist Ryan McGuire has been making art for as long as he can remember. “I enjoy creating things that don’t regularly exist in the world. It’s exciting to see how people respond to my creations and when the feedback is positive I get motivated to make more art.”
Using imagination as the starting point, Ryan uses photography as an expression of his personality and pushes the boundaries of what is considered ordinary.
“Sometimes I think my art projects would be easier if I had some professional training, but it’s possible that not already knowing the proven and tested approach of creating art allows me the creative freedom to break the rules and make monstrosities that make you go hmmm.”
A purveyor of instant gratification, Ryan likes to strike while the iron is hot. “I’m bursting at the seams with ideas and creativity, but this works well for me because I’m an anti-procrastinator. This means when I have an art idea I make it. I experiment with many different mediums and the challenge of working with foreign materials is half the fun.”
His whimsical imagery evokes ingenuity, thought, and more often than not, a smile.
