About the Artist
Ryan Carrington grew up in a family that values labor, hard work, and creating with one’s hands. At the heart of all of his pieces lies a quiet homage to the modern-day craftsman and tradesman. Carrington’s respect for work that is unique, complicated, and sometimes forgotten, inspires him to take ordinary building materials and push these products to new limits. He challenges himself to see what force and tension they can withstand, what innovative fabrication techniques can be developed, and what beauty emerges when the purpose of these classic materials is reimagined.
