On October 1, EXCAVO celebrates the opening of Becoming Pastoral, featuring the much anticipated exhibition of abstract works by acclaimed Canadian artist, Ron Kingswood.
Produced during a self-imposed exile from his lauded representational work, Kingswood departed from literal references in search ‘for something intangible’ over a six year period of ‘unlearning’ conventions. Merging visceral and abstract sensibilities, the paintings on view seek to illuminate the mysteries of our environment.
Throughout his extensive forty year career, Kingswood has devoted his practice to investigating our interconnectedness to the external world. For his inaugural exhibition at EXCAVO, Kingswood’s works reawaken the allegorical potential of nature; linking the flux of its phenomena to the spiritual realm.
Ron Kingswood has exhibited internationally, his work part of numerous collections, including; The National Museum of Wildlife Art, Wyoming Ella Sharp Museum of Art, Michigan, USA; Foothills Art Center, Colorado, USA; Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wisconsin, USA; Museum London, Ontario, Canada and The Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Virginia.
