Pivot Opening Reception
From the venue:
Pivot represents both Ron Saunders’ future endeavors and current art practice. Ron presents a set of new abstract paintings that expose the tension between traditional organization and uncontrolled natural forces resulting in imagery that could be coined “cataclysmic formalism”. Through this lens, the paintings are unstable- background and foreground battle each other for dominance while giving rise to myriad emerging forms and clarifications. Through embracing the space between control and disorder, the striking unexpected visuals toy between beauty and inevitability.
