New Art serie by Ronald Hunter: Islands (2019)
As a full-time artist, Ronald Hunter spends a lot of time trying out new techniques and styles. And although Ronald creates his art according to a set of rules, there still are endless directions to explore when he’s examining form and figures. One of the joys of working in abstract, is the freedom Ronald feels to experiment with colors and shapes.
His latest art serie ‘Islands’ (2019) is the result of one of those explorations. Free forms seem to float around on the canvas. The paintings are built up from many layers of acrylic paint and textures. What is interesting about this serie, is that for the first time the texture is leading in the painting. The layers of color that arise as a result, create a powerful image.
‘Islands’ takes my exploration of free form to another level. I often need the full canvas to tell my story, but with ‘Islands’ I am leaving more space, and let the textured patterns take the lead.
