Biography

Ryan Lammie is a multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, painting, and photography. Lammie uses material interventions to re-establish an object’s continued narrative. These interventions alter the object's original function, stripping the object of its previous utility and suggesting a new or extended narrative.

Lammie has been inspired by artists such as Alberto Giacometti, Wols (a.o. wolfgang schulze), Jean Dubuffet, Lucio Fontana, Jean Tinguely, Robert Rauschenberg, Eva Hesse, Louise Nevelson, Rashid Johnson, Chris Ofili, Mark Bradford, Leonardo Drew, Yayoi Kusama, Mickalene Thomas, and Julie Mehretu.

Lammie attended the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, where he studied painting and graphic design. He was awarded the Elizabeth Stokel Battell Fellowship Award and attended the Yale Norfolk Residency in 2011. Lammie’s work has been featured in the North East Issue (110) of New American Paintings, the 103rd AAP Annual Exhibition at the Westmoreland Museum of Art, and the Pittsburgh Biennial.
