From The Sunday Times review of the 2015 RHA Annual Exhibition:

"There are works that stand out as you walk past for reasons of mood, style, ­colour

or a trigger of recognition from elsewhere: Fergus Andrew Ryan’s Hot and Cold,

an Andrew Wyeth-esque, Martin Gale-style painting of old baths in a field with

a high horizon, trees and barn..."

From The Sunday Times review of the 2016 RHA Annual Exhibition:

"There are some stunning painted portraits this year... Entwined by Fergus Andrew Ryan."
