Ryan Shane Owen

Ryan Shane Owen is an artist and musician from Vancouver. Heavily influenced by the dynamics and expression of musical composition, Owen's work captures movement in stillness and sound in silence. His artistic expression is characterized by action, energy and progression. Owen's works reflect the “harmonies of life”, shaping the foundation for creative interpretation through a fusion of sound and space.

His three-dimensional abstract sculptural artworks are created in a relief style with mixed mediums. Inspired by architecture, landscape, and geological formations. Owen's compositions are evocative of macro and microcosms. With a flavor of retro-futurism, they suggest a merging of nature and technology, blurring the line between positive and negative space. They use angles and perspective to illustrate an interplay between randomness and pattern. The smooth surfaces are juxtaposed with a worn, metallic patina and influenced by movement, motion, and the lines of dance and music.
