Fascinated with the mysteries and origins of the universe, Ricky says, “It is my hope to reconcile scientific thinking with spiritual imagination.”
At only 25, Ricky Schaede already has an impressive body of work to his credit. His highly detailed, hallucinatory images explore a spiritual, often cosmic landscape in which familiar animals integrate with mythical creatures and other fantastical organisms. Fascinated with the mysteries and origins of the universe, Ricky says, “It is my hope to reconcile scientific thinking with spiritual imagination.” This fall the cofounder of Orangeville’s Club Art, arts activist, art instructor and art store manager was a 25 Under 25 Award recipient. You can see his work regularly on the walls of Euphoria Café in Orangeville and at the Museum of Dufferin from December 15 to February 1. rickyschaede.com
