The Low-Residency MFA in Visual Studies presents an evening with Visiting Artist Ryan Pierce.

Ryan Pierce’s vivid, large-scale paintings depict our world after the end of human industry. He draws on influences from ecological theory, literature, and folk art to create scenes that portray the resilience of the natural world. His work has been recognized by the Joan Mitchell and San Francisco Foundations, Art in America and Art Papers. Pierce is co-founder of Signal Fire, a group that facilitates wilderness residencies and retreats for artists of all disciplines.
