“Ryder Richards finds pleasure in examinations of the fleeting aspects of life and the mysterious nature of spirituality. Stylishly architectural wooden robots, lovingly crafted paintings reminiscent of movie posters or billboard advertisements, and myriad representations of flight all speak a similar iconic language of memory and escape. His works are rooted in nostalgia and fantasy, but often serve up reminders of the limitations of the human experience. ”
