Ryder Cooley is an interdisciplinary artist, musician and performer. Weaving together chimeric images with found props and forgotten objects, she creates cinematic performances and installation spaces. In 1993 Ryder Cooley received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Sculpture. She then migrated to San Francisco and became an active member of the local art and music scenes. She completed a Masters Degree in Combined Media at SUNY, Albany in 2006 and an MFA in Integrated Electronic Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2008.
Ryder Cooley’s drawings were featured in the Sideshow Silent Art Auction benefit for Mister ArtSee in 2010. More of her work can be found at www.carolynrydercooley.com
