17 Feb The new abstracts: contemporary paintings for a life dream
They are contemporary impressions, made of undefined colours and subjects. Abstract stories inspired by places, landscapes and the colours of Italy and the Mediterranean. They give the feeling of a fresco, even though they are paintings where the artist sometimes uses marble paste to give that sense of freshness and life.
A new collection of works offered by ArteMariani and curated by the American artist Ron, who has released the exclusive rights to sell these works as numbered edition artworks. A native of New York where he worked for forty years in Manhattan’s art world, Ron and his wife have been living in Italy for twenty years in his mother’s house, where he returned to find his roots.
“These abstract works,” says the artist, “are inspired by the colours, light, and poetry of Italian cities. My inspiration comes from both natural landscapes and metropolitan spaces. I love old, weathered city walls that evoke a feeling of both the past and present.” Ron developed his art at Manhattan’s School of Visual Art, where he received his professional training and acquired most of his knowledge. He also received prestigious recognitions that allowed him to become the youngest teacher at the School of Visual Art.
