Ryan Goolsby


I often find myself obsessing over things that many people overlook. Derelict signs stripped of neon. A bike rack on a public sidewalk. Strings of holiday lights cascading from a ceiling. A cast iron radiator affixed to a wall. I am drawn to the latent functionality of these objects – the glimmer of a possible purpose in an otherwise inert being. There is a strange beauty in this limbo, when entities are caught between something and nothing, between a point and pointlessness.
