Bryan Ritchie received a BFA from the University of Windsor in Canada and an MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Currently he is a Professor in the School of Art and Design at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. His work has been featured both nationally and internationally with exhibitions in Colorado, Texas, Georgia, Nebraska, Indiana, Minnesota, California, Wisconsin, Utah, Kentucky, New York, South Carolina, France, England, New Zealand and Bermuda.
In addition, Bryan’s work was published in New American Paintings volume 65, and he was an artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center. In 2009 Bryan was an invited artist for the Saxa Lonquuntur printmaking collaboration in Marcilac, France.
He says: “My recent work questions axioms regarding what is valued, what are aimers in life, and how does one navigate doubt, failure and loss to attain goals. The images speak of dedication and resiliency, but also of consequence as the pursuit of our aspirations often leaves unintended emotive and material wreckage.”
