‘perceiving the environment from within, looking not at it but in it, nature becomes something quite different. It is transformed into a realm where we live as participants not observers’
Ron is a contemporary visual artist who combines conceptual and traditional approaches in his art practice.
Often working at the boundary of abstraction and figuration, he creates a detachment from the material world, giving the viewer freedom to respond emotionally to his ambiguous narrative spaces. He allows meaning to unfold through immersive research, intuitive use of materials, and social engagement.
His work weaves together threads of concern for the fragile uncertainty of life, the importance of place and the nature of time.
Work that is more than the simple pleasure of looking.
