Artists find inspiration in nature, traveling, and cities. But perhaps the greatest of inspirations is other people. Humans were not made to be in isolation. We crave intimacy and relationships. Although that also brings with it much frustration and pain; it is still worth it. […]
We often speak of intelligence in narrow terms. We think that only those who are mathematically or scientifically inclined are smart. Psychologists, on the other hand, have come up with nine different types of intelligence. One of those is spatial intelligence which applies to painters, […]
Exploration. That is what we promote.
Too often, we hibernate inside our homes and miss out on so many great opportunities to explore. Seek out the hidden and mysterious corners of your city. Walk through streets you’ve never been through. Talk to people who are not like you. It is then the ordinary will become extraordinary.

In 1987 when I was 8 years old, I created my very first paintings named “Pooh Bear on a train track with some honey by a window”. Since then, my art has developed through self-education, some formal education, and life experience. I like to take an idea, whether a moment of connection or a situation felt, and create a time and space around it on the canvas. The inspiration caused by seeing something evolve from nothing, and the effects that it can create, has spurred me on to developing my art.
In moments of inspiration, my best work is developed amidst the pounding beats and rhythms of music, or a movie playing repeatedly in the background. On occasion I have found myself painting in isolation on a mountaintop, while other times I paint in the midst of many others. I enjoy experimenting and getting my ideas out in a way that words may not do justice.
When I experience the world, I know in those moments that I am only experiencing a snapshot of reality. Because of the experience of both that which I can and cannot see, and because of the enormous scope of our world, my faith both informs and interprets my experience. When I consider that scope, I become all too aware of my own smallness and frailty, awareness that drives me to my knees with a deep, inner awe for life. I often find it hard to stop life and think about it …my hope is that my art will help allow a space for this reflection.
I love music, but it’s hard to predict what song I will like. Because of this, I have pondered music, and what attracts me to a particular song. I have found that I like music for two reasons: One – I will enjoy a song for its overall jingle, and Two – for the words and meaning it conveys. It is a bonus when I find a song that gives me both of these. Similar to the attractiveness of music, I try to bring across both aesthetic presence and significance in my art.
Artist Ryan Morse creates art not to inform the community, preach religion or change political views on the world. The artwork he creates serves one sole purpose, to display the beauty of the human form through his visual lens. His art conveys that there is […]
Although we’ve made huge progress through the development of technology and science, there is one area that sees little advancement. That is in the area of understanding and mutual respect. We continue to perpetuate fear and mistrust towards people who either look or think differently to us. We continue to divide into factions and heap blame and insults at the other side. We fail to ever acknowledge that goodness and beauty could be present in our opponents. Our greatest mistake is thinking that we are the greatest and that our way is the best way. But it doesn’t have to be this way…
