“Trajectory” in Dallas, TX

“Trajectory”
Ryder Richards

WHERE: ThirdSpace, presented by Ro2 Art, benefiting DPAP
1608 Main St. Dallas, TX 75201
WHEN: Aug 7- 24, 2010.
Opening Reception: Saturday, Aug 7, 6-9 p.m.

“Trajectory” is presented by Ro2 Art at ThirdSpace, benefiting Dallas Public Arts Project. Ryder Richards’ new drawings, installations, and sculptures are derived from the ballistic trajectory of a .243 Winchester rifle. The works explore the physical and metaphorical quandary of a trajectory as a quantified destiny, attempting to alter the predetermined path. The works will be on view August 7th through the 28th, 2010. Please join us for the opening receptions Saturday, August 7, 6-9 p.m.

Richards new drawings, recently shown in San Antonio at Cactus Bra Space, take the form of installation as images and structures pull free of the walls or, inversely, form a rupture in a wall. About his work Richards says, “Trajectory is essentially a path with a predetermined conclusion. I am interested in a Newtonian predetermination applied to social and cultural constructs. The ability for a condition to be predicted based on its initial velocity intrigues me and I am curious as to the ability to map human development in much the same way. Will I be like my father? If I am not, what enormous amount of force must be exerted in order to unbalance the equation of the path before me?”
