RYAN SCHNEIDER and SAM FRYER, Art Market Hamptons, NY – Two Rams Project

In July 2014, Coburn Projects and Two Rams presented New York artists Sam Fryer and Ryan Schneider at Art Market Hamptons art fair. 

Sam Fryer is an abstract painter. For the artist, paintings are breeding grounds for ideas. “It is essential that I cannot know what will come of an idea for a painting until I actually make the painting. Painting, for me, is active thinking. It is a learning experience that matures with each canvas. I am convinced that thought and feeling exist before the concepts, words and other conventional forms of expression we use to communicate them.”

Ryan Schneider is a Brooklyn-based painter with a BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art. Recent exhibitions include Scheids and Heids at Bendixen Contemporary, Copenhagen, Cast a Shadow at Hezi Cohen, Tel Aviv, and group shows with Bleecker Street Arts Club, the Hole, and Louis B. James gallery. He participated in the Lower Manhattan’s Cultural Council Artist-in-Residency program in 2010/2011. Schneider’s work has been featured in Modern Painters, The New Yorker, Art in America, The Brooklyn Rail, among other prestigious publications. 

TWO RAMS is a contemporary art gallery on the Bowery in New York City established by Tali Wertheimer and Brandon Coburn. In addition to curating exhibitions in-house, Two Rams collaborates with prominent galleries from important art centers around the world to bring ambitious and adventurous projects to New York.
