~ Ryder Richards
Ryder Richards: I am a fiber artist living and working in Calgary. I make art, teach art and love art. I was born and raised in Calgary and constantly struggle with my love for it and the pain and broken heart it has caused. This work is a drawing stitched on wool then mounted on silk … a little house sitting atop the prairies rich landscape and very subtly stitched to the left it reads “Should I stay here?” The question … My question … Is this really my home?
