ABOUT THE WORK
Everybody has a story to tell. In his book paintings, Ryan Steadman explores the structure and signifiers of narrative. A book, like a painting, is both object and image. It is imbued with memory and meaning that can change over time. As such, Steadman's series investigates the mutability of both visual ideals and ideological content as well as how the two affect one another.
