Exploring the implications of Christ's presence in all of life.
Articles by Ryan Stander
Originally from the farmlands of northwest Iowa, Ryan Stander is a transplant to central North Dakota. He’s alternated his education between art and theology with a MFA from the University of North Dakota, MA in Theology from Sioux Falls Seminary (SD), and a BA in Art from Northwestern College (IA). His theological interests draw upon liturgical theology and the religious imagination to evocatively engage contemporary visual art. As a printmaker and photographer, his work has been exhibited internationally in South Africa, China, Central and South America; nationally in New York, New Jersey, and Texas; and across the Upper-Midwest. Ryan is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Minot State University where he teaches photography. Stander also directs the Bachelor of Fine Arts program and Flat Tail Press.
If the earth is the Lord’s and fullness thereof, everything in it belongs to our Creator and Redeemer. For culture, and particularly the arts, this means we do not need make judgments upon what is and isn’t Christian.
