S1 Artspace is delighted to announce The Departure - a new limited edition by British artist Ryan Mosley, which will be presented alongside a solo exhibition of Mosley’s paintings in December 2022.
The Departure (2022) depicts a scene that conjures multiple narratives and possibilities - a quality which permeates throughout Mosley's painting practice. Two solitary figures sit in a rowing boat at sunset within a watery highland landscape. One pensively plays the guitar as the other absent-mindedly rows into the unknown. The viewer cannot deduce their destination, but the title suggests this couple plan to journey to new shores.
This is the first edition Mosley has produced where the artist has hand-embellished each individual archival print. Brush marks accentuate elements within the image making each edition entirely unique.
Ryan Mosley (b. 1980, Chesterfield) is a painter based in Sheffield. He completed his BA in Drawing and Painting at Huddersfield University in 2003 and his MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London in 2007. His work has been featured in several group exhibitions including the recent exhibition The Kingfisher’s Wing, curated by Tom Morton at GRIMM, New York (2022), the notable major survey exhibition Radical Figures: Painting in the New Millennium at the Whitechapel Gallery, London (2020), and One Day, Something Happens: Paintings of People, curated by Jennifer Higgie at Hayward Gallery Touring, UK (2015-2016).
