Redbud Gallery is pleased to present the works of Houston based artist Ryan Baptiste in his exhibition “The Light Beyond The Blight”.  On view at Redbud East Gallery from June 6 through June 30, 2020.  We have sanitized the gallery, will limit attendance, practice sensible distancing, and have masks on hand for our visitors.  The opening reception date is subject to change due to state requirements.Artist Statement:Some people may contend that all works must be representational in order to tell a story. I am fully convinced that the figurative and abstract can both have a narrative. I have found a beautiful story hidden in both the decaying of the urban landscape and the people that inhabit that space. A story that reminds us that life is short and we need one another. Through my work, I am visually striving to prove that we as people share some of the same desires, hopes, and passions. I feel that my current works are emotionally and metaphorically charged portraits of people, friends and family that expose urban traditions and the human condition. I have begun merging my primary focus in painting with what is important to me; memories, feelings, and experiences. I subtly challenge social, political and economic issues by focusing on key events and situations that are both personal and global. I am closely observing the current state of the world while recalling the echoes of my ancestors.
