The fine art paintings seen above conceptualize on psychological disorders, specifically phobias. This series currently consists of 7 paintings. The paintings are entirely on wood panels with medium of oils, acrylics, Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol, burned wood, woodcut techniques and masking tape.

  • The "phobia art" section, AKA: the early or initial works, is a collection of initial concepts and paintings about psychological phobias and the detriment they can cause on the lives of the sufferers. This phobia series is graphically, object oriented and highly, idea orientated. Most of the paintings stem from actual stories Dennis has heard and read about along the way. Don't worry, no names or specifics are identified in this art to protect the real story tellers from exposure in any sort of way or fashion.

The paintings in the OCD art series and phobia art series are some of the earliest pieces in Dennis Ryan's crusade to focus on psychological disorder concepts as an artist. He has been painting about these concepts for 15 years.
