Ryder Richards is an artist, curator and educator. It is the combination of all three that brings you the complete Ryder Richards.
Zoneone Arts is delighted to bring Ryder Richards to you…
You work and call Texas home; was it your education that brought you to Texas. Discuss how Texas has developed and nurtured you and your artistic side?
Texas provides a contradictory set of values, which promotes a flexible mind. I guess, what I mean is that duelling dichotomies are abundant: Texas believes in religion and guns, proudly valuing rugged, violent individualism equally with Jesus and good manners. ~ In a more practical sense Texas affirms a “go-getter” attitude, in which you are praised for boot-strap endeavours. So when a couple friends and I started the RJP Nomadic Gallery driving and exhibiting across the state we were welcomed and applauded. There is a tendency to make your own scene here, to become what you want to see.
