"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.
