Joe Ryckebosch's Profile
Appropriated and ready made materials. Memory serves through the years. A certain place and time. A view from another angle. A new life for the lost and thrashed. Moved to Portland, OR in 2007 to escape grey confines of NYC. Escaped California to NYC in 2006 only to find myself needing more space. Moved around too much and now need certain rest. Finding it slowly and using the fresh scenery for new projects.
The original works were patterned abstracts inspired by rigid architecture and disintegrating morale. OMD knew it all too well; I was starting something that would soon become all encompassing, regardless of who knew and who cared. Friends and family would make frequent visits to our apartment only to find themselves trapped in between overwhelming lines and patterns. Nervous gazes, and comments like "How long did it take you to make these?" and "You should really try to put these up somewhere"…
