Lance Ryan McGoldrick is a multi-media artist working in a variety of nontraditional contexts. His work ranges from discrete objects to immersive environments, often created with combinations of found-objects, texture, light, and geometry. Incorporating youthful exuberance, his work explores environmental themes as a reflection of place and with a reverence for nature. His work appears in non-traditional spaces as well as in galleries, at festivals, and as permanent public art installations.
Lance holds a degree in Entrepreneurial Studies from University of New Mexico. His enterprises have included the operation of a landscaping company and a screen-printing shop; he was also an award-winning display artist for Urban Outfitters. He often collaborates with other artists, in particular the Albuquerque-based non-profit Friends of the Orphan Signs. He works most often with the internationally-acclaimed art collective Meow Wolf building immersive environments in New Mexico, Las Vegas, Denver, and elsewhere.
Born in the mountains of Placitas, New Mexico, Lance has lived most of his life in Albuquerque where his parents, grandparents and larger community nurture a love of art and nature.
