ADDS DONNA is pleased to present In Between Daydreams, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Ryan Richey.
Ryan Richey is a storyteller. From humble everyday scenes to epic family tales, his anecdotal paintings cite memories that drift from banal to downright eerie. Brought up in a family with a strong oral tradition, Richey was used to hearing varied renditions of family histories. Everyone spun their own versions of each story, and though that made truth harder to pinpoint, they culminated in a rich, compounded family mythology that continues to influence Richey’s work.
