Douglas Tausik Ryder

Los Angeles, CA

DOUGLAS TAUSIK RYDER’s process reconciles tradition with a digital landscape, revisiting and re-imagining the history of sculpture with tools specific to our time. Over the past few years, Tausik Ryder has taught himself to use G-code and advanced machining techniques, embarking on a multi-year struggle to become adept in the technicalities and nuances of new programs and equipment. This new expertise was necessary if he wanted to bridge divergent high and low-tech sensibilities. In his recent series of large wooden forms, he replicates the look and feel of traditional, crafted objects through computer-aided methods. He works with wood, a sculptural material with a hands-on, nature-oriented legacy–think of 20th century masters Sam Maloof or J.B. Blunk, chiseling away at tree trunks in their studios.
Wescover creator since 2019
