The monochromatic color palette in Night Crawlers distinguishes this work from his other paintings, which usually feature brightly saturated hues and various patterns. The stark composition, with the twinkling sky and illuminated earth are visually exciting. Through simple marks, Ryan is able to conjure up a plethora of cultural associations that are tied to notions of the moon and darkness. A relatively innocent work, it contains visual clues that are loaded with iconic meaning.
