Giclee Print

Created by Ron Reams
this item has not yet been reviewed  
Giclee print of an original mixed media collage composition. Ron Reams, as a colorist, works in the exceptional range of image fabrication and discovery techniques. These works introduce color by focusing on sensual harmony and balance while embracing contrast. Abstraction, as the base of each painting, accents the inclusion and combination of landscape and figurative image development.

According to Reams, Each painting begins with a square thumb-nail mixed media collage that grows into the much larger visual reality of a completed work of art". During the construction of each collage, paint, ink, and various textures are blended to develop the counter balancing elements necessary for the work to grow. Since Reams sees blocks of space with color and images, he starts each painting on a 15 foot panel that is painted in segments that are separated into 60 squares which are treated as individual studies. Each square, in this initial painting stage, is further enhanced by Ron's unique technique of rotating the square while developing the painting's color, space, contrast and balance.

Reams believes his rotation technique allows him to stretch the boundaries of the work and his perception of the statement of the painting's mission. This media of expression has opened up his probing for later works that followed. Overall, 20 panels were created then stored for later observation and study. These experimentations expanded his perceptual boundaries into new directions to combine color and form harmoniously.

About this Artist

Ron Reams

"I paint from the deepest part of my core. I become the paint and the surface, allowing the elements and the environment to shape itself during creation. If I think about the past, or the end result, which would be the future, I am no longer creating from my core. In order to be true to my passion, I must be in the moment. I create from life's adventure and the actualization of that experience."

Painter Ron Reams explores the energy of his art in a sculptural way, building layer upon layer, color upon color.This visceral interpretation aligns with Reams' intent to always paint in the moment, allowing the paint, the emotion, and the energy of the painting to direct what happens on the canvas.

In the late nineties, Reams began putting vignettes of drawings and paintings together. He then built fifteen foot panels of these fragments, creating the equivalent of abstract collage.These large scale pieces reflected his search for a non-routine way of painting. This new media approach paved the way for the works that followed, as the artist carved out a distinct artistic style of his own.

The artist began his formal education at Ringling School of Arts but credits his mentors - David Anderson, Edgar Miller, and William Pachner - as the nuclei of his expression. Each brought his own specific influence and, as a result, inspired Reams' artistic candor. These three advisors allowed Reams to strive beyond the archetypal classroom education, thus focusing on actualizing his own style.
