Ryan Carrington

United We Stand

October 10th, 2015 - November 7th, 2015

Ryan Carrington's work addresses the shift in public perspective towards the culturally defined roles of blue and white-collar workers in the United States.  It bridges issues of labor, class, work ethic and economics with his personal and family history.  Within Ryan's studio practice he delves deep into processes that parallel the monotony and tedium that laborers endure.  By using construction materials directly off the shelf from Home Depot, pieces of uniforms that represent America’s workforce, and performing acts of labor while dressed as a CEO, he invites a discussion about the ever-changing class struggle in the United States.  His intent is to provide a conduit for empathy between our stratified society by inspiring dialogue across communities of people that represent the corners of our culture, history and socio-economic status.
