Artist Statement

Evelyn Rydz creates detailed drawings based on her photographs from various coastlines of lost and discarded objects that have washed ashore. Focused on the narratives these found objects have gathered on their journeys, Rydz explores the history and possible interconnection between these displaced objects.  She has worked with drawing, installation, video and sound. Her recent works use found rope from East Coast shorelines to explore the paths of ocean currents around the globe.
