Ryan W. Romer

As an Alaskan Native with Yup’ik heritage, growing up in rural southwest Alaska influenced my work through stories heard and memories saved. As a printmaker the pieces I created for Alaska Urological Institute are a presentation of playful images, encompassing happy times along the Kuskokwim River. The first story represents a family huddled together as if their photo is being taken. The second story depicts the calmness of life in a kayak, fishing and using that skill in urban Alaska. The third story is a group of traditional dancers moving in unison, embodying a sense of healing and gratefulness.
