Ryan Gander is a contemporary British artist known for his wide-ranging multimedia practice that encompasses painting, sculpture, installation, and writing. Suffering from a longstanding physical disability which requires a wheelchair, Gander openly explores his personal challenges to thoughtful artistic ends. 'Absence' plays a central role in Gander's work and lends the works an enigmatic aura. It invites the viewer to re-establish a story's hidden character or object's possible function and by that illuminates the process of making meaning of a work of art. Gander has been a Professor of Visual Art at the University of Huddersfield and holds an honorary Doctor of the Arts at the Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Suffolk. In 2017 he was awarded an OBE for services to contemporary art.
