Cordy Ryman in group show at 1GAP Gallery

Cordy Ryman | 1GAP Gallery
Cordy Ryman is among the four artists brought together in Wit and Vigor, a group exhibtition at 1GAP Gallery in Brooklyn, NY from April 13 - August 3, 2022.

Cordy Ryman’s work was recently reviewed by poet/critic John Yau in Hyperallergic: “What Ryman brings to the table is a sense of humor marked by a refusal to regard the role of the artist too seriously...” Cordy’s practice is process oriented. He is concerned with formal qualities and compositional strategy, while still relying on his intuitive ability to embrace chance in his work. Purposefully using and re-using elements from older works, they are reconfigured to create something new, while at the same time retaining a glimpse of their history.

Cordy, based in NYC, received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts, NYC. He had a solo show at Freight and Volume in NYC in 2021, and his work has been exhibited at numerous institutions including the Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, NY; Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, NY; Bronx River Arts Center, Bronx, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL; University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT; Esbjerg Museum of Modern Art, Esbjerg, Denmark; Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, TX, and MoMA PS1 in NY. His work is in notable collections, among them the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, FL; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, CA; Microsoft Art Collection; Pizzuti Collection, Columbus, OH; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS; Raussmüller Collection, Basel, Switzerland; The Speyer Family Collection, NY; and the Rubell Family Collection, Miami, FL
