Inspiration has no boundaries. Interview with artist Ryan Trombley

I guess it’s so curious to know what do artists think about their works, how they feel our world and how does their imagination transfer into different art objects. And at last how their energy inspires and charges us.
Do their ideas come to them accidentally or after deep plunging into philosophical musing?

American artist Ryan Trombley reveals  to us something of  his inner creative world.

How did you decide to become artist?

I have always liked drawing as a kid and till my teens, but it was only until recently I wanted to take it seriously. The thought of creating something that would inspire others and leave my mark on this Earth sounds attractive to me.

Could you reveal us what are the sources of your inspiration?

The simple answer, anything and everything. I could be walking downtown and see the way a person is sitting on a bench, I could be listening to music and it would inspire a certain mood, or I could just be daydreaming and see something that is paintable in my head. Inspiration has no boundaries. But mainly, old European art and sculpture, along with contemporary ideas and colors tend to be the direction I head in in terms of inspiration.

The Limit, 2013

 Are you still looking for new creative ways or you think you have found your style?

I think I have found my style, but at the same time I will never stop experimenting with other art genres and styles. If it interests me or catches my eye, I will try to incorporate it into my own style and make it my own.

Have you ever thought about the video art. I think this is close to your aesthetics, but of course I could be wrong?

I would love to branch out into different medias like video and digital in the future. It does interest me to just casually film on the spot or take photos, since I find it much easier effort and time wise. Painting takes way more effort than filming or photography in my opinion.

Your works are minimalistic, you consider whether it allows the beholder to focus on the pure idea?

Some of my works are minimalistic, well most. I think simplicity is triumph complication in every aspect in the universe. As you said, simplicity forces the viewer to focus on a single feature or aspect of the artwork, to get your point across as blunt as possible. I also think it forces you to see the beauty in something, and phase out all the background noise. Also, if you are new to art, simplicity is an advantage to you and shows you what you should be focusing on in a piece of art.

Memories of Love, 2013

What do you think about contemporary art? It is honest with the audience or there is any «flirting» with the beholders? Or is it a thing in itself, when the idea for the idea?

I think there is a place in art history for contemporary art, and it has it’s advantages, but it also has major disadvantages. Contemporary art brings upon new ideas and globalization of the art world, but most contemporary artists tend to put the least amount of effort in art, and try to compensate by putting a vague title on their artwork (Conceptual art) and force viewers to guess what it is which is nearly impossible most of the time, and is undermining real artists. Most famous contemporary artists just know people in the art industry and it has become a class exclusive business. Most of today’s famous contemporary artists don’t even make their own art (Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami) and it is just a business of rich artists, selling to rich buyers. The majority of it is slowly killing the originality of the art world.

Mastering the Pain

Do you have a favorite work of your own art?

Surprisingly, I will like all of my art fresh after completion, but after awhile I will grow to dislike it, but I guess that is just me growing as an artist skill and idea wise. But my favorite piece of art I have complete would be «Memories of Love», it meant a lot to me and I still think it is my best work aesthetic wise.
