Australian artist Holly Ryan is recognised for her hand-carved sculptures that pay homage to the female form and explore the female experience. Looking back to touchstones of modern sculpture, the artist breathes new expressions into abstract faces and movements into bodily forms.

Her background as a jewellery maker has long informed the way she honours the materiality of each piece that passes through her hands. With an organic yet refined approach to aesthetic principles, Ryan often turns to the natural world and the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi for inspiration. Holly Ryan was born on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland in 1988. Her recent exhibitions include, ‘Exhale' Jerico Contemporary 2019, 'A Carved Revelation' Jerico Contemporary, 2018 and 'Christiane Spangsberg & Holly Ryan' Jerico Contemporary Booth, Sydney Contemporary, 2018. The artist currently lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Holly Ryan is represented by Jerico Contemporary.
