Visitor comments

"Travelled from Derbyshire just to see these and they were fantastic. They made my future husband cry, wonderful work. Please enter politics! VOTE RYAN" Kirsty & Sandy

"So exquisite - beautiful, uplifting, happy art - such a romantic series - and great for three boys who are going to go home to try out paper cutting! Thank you I love these!" MS

To celebrate the 100th exhibition at The Park Gallery, Exhibitions Officer Gillian Smith has invited Rob Ryan to present his first ever solo show in Scotland. Love Hasn’t Even Got Started Yet features a collection of charming and intricate papercuts, prints and ceramics spanning the last six years of the artist’s career.

The Map of My Entire Life 2012

Rob Ryan: The Map Of My Entire Life

The exhibition features significant works from Ryan’s repertoire including The Map of My Entire Life 2012, his largest papercut to date, created for Manchester Art Gallery’s touring exhibition, The First Cut. ‘There is Only Time’, 2013 first exhibited in Ryan’s solo show of the same name at Sims Reed Gallery, London as well as the previously unseen new edition of Love Hasn’t event Got Stated Yet which has been specially created by Rob for this exhibition.

Rob Ryan was born in 1962 in Akrotiri, Cyprus, He studied fine art at Trent Polytechnic and at the Royal College of Art, London where he specialised in printmaking.

Since 2002 Rob has been working principally within the paper cutting medium. Although he views himself first and always as a fine artist, his intricate papercut work adapts itself readily to screenprinting which can be easily transferred to ceramics, fabrics, lasercutting and other surfaces.
