Kavi Gupta Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with New York artist Cordy Ryman.

With accessible materials like Velcro, manufactured woods, enamels and various other found objects, Ryman constructs simple and elegant forms that conflate the aesthetics of Minimalism and Post Painterly Abstraction. Rough and casual, Ryman's sculptures treat the reductive movements that form the apex of Modern Art as pliable components employed toward a yet unfinished project. Without being overwrought or playing to the lowest common denominator, they represent a strategy for how art can leave behind the limiting principles of our last century and engage formalism for today.

Cordy Ryman’s (b. 1971, New York City) solo exhibitions include Taché-Levy Gallery (Brussels, Belgium), DCKT Contemporary (New York, NY), Mark Moore Gallery, (Santa Monica), Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery (New York, NY), Traver Gallery (Seattle, WA) and Stalke Up North (Gilleleje, Denmark). Group exhibitions include Aberrant Abstraction, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (Overland Park, KS), One More, Esbjerg Museum of Modern Art (Esbjerg, Denmark), Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts, American Academy of Arts and Letters (New York, NY) and Greater New York 2005 at P.S. 1 Contemporary Arts Center (Long Island City, NY).
