Welcome, Im Southwest Florida artist Ryan Eddy Lutz- producing photography, transfer drawings, and other mixed media art. After the 2019 death of my partner, I took her art supplies, and began creating.

Growing up in the upholstery industry in Hickory, North Carolina, I gained an appreciation of good color. My works are first and foremost a study of color, and harnessing the power of color for large impactful pieces.
Creating art is a hobby and it has been a therapeutic adventure. I hope you enjoy looking around.

Ryan lutz Influences

Much in the spirit of Paul Gauguin, or Bob Rauschenberg, I Incorporate transfer drawings into my works. These works are 100% unique. Many transfer drawings have added watercolor, chalk pastels, graphite, etc added.

My works are in the spirit of the colorfield movement where the overall impact is in the color of the piece. Departing from colorfield tradition, I use imagery.

Top 3 art influences

1. Paul Delaroche (La Jeune Martyre) Young Martyr. This piece left a heavy impact, which I can not articulate.
2. Robert Rauschenberg (Captiva, Florida) His busy style and color mastery was groundbreaking.
