Evelyn Rydz: Drawing, Installation
Rydz, 26, got her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts just last year, and already her work ($300-$7,000) has earned her a solo show at Howard Yezerski Gallery in April and entry to the 2006 DeCordova Annual Exhibition in May. She draws baroquely detailed, energized, morphing scenes, which sometimes spread out over long scrolls. "I create my own world and creatures -- dynamic organisms," says Rydz, also a director at GASP gallery in Brookline. "They're all affected by an exaggerated gravity, being pulled toward each other, so a map of Italy could be part of a tiny molecular structure." evelynrydz.com
