Ryder Mathews, Hammond, Louisiana Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement My Name's Ryder Mathews. I love rich bold colors and textures. I've been painting and drawing most of my life. In 2003 I decided to go to school, I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a Degree in studio and digital art. I've also work with a Bronze sculptor since 2004, William Ludwigs.
With my paintings I try to give hints to a story and leave it up to the viewer what that story might be. Also I'm terrible at Artist statements, rather than tell someone what my art is about, I would much rather them tell me what it means to them.
