Ryan Estep is an emerging New York-based artist whose work usually begins with the creation of a monochromatic surface in the tradition of Post-Minimalism and journeys through a process of gestural mark-making. His works also have an element of chance and intriguing materiality, using unconventional materials such as lipstick, drywall mud, dirt and even lidocaine.
