An Exploration of Line and Form - 20 Year Retrospective : Ron Eady
"I found the tactile surface of encaustic works enticing. From my first encaustic painting (Constructure 1) I wanted to translate the technique of crosshatching from my pen and ink sketches into dimensional paintings. Over the years incorporating this technique of crosshatch line work with encaustic became my signature style."
Ontario based painter and sculptor Ron Eady returns for his 5th Solo Exhibition at Abbozzo Gallery. An Exploration of Line and Form takes us through the 20 year evolution of approaches to figure in Ron Eady’s artwork, the influence of encaustic, and eventual foray into sculpture. Oft reclaiming old beams, frames, and mill materials for his own purposes, Eady’s signature style marries his technical ability with his rustic and industrial aesthetic to arresting effect.
