Inspired by his travels—to places like India, Vietnam, and Cuba—and the endless permutations of color and geometric forms, Ron Piller produces abstract acrylic-on-panel paintings, filled with what he calls “stripes, squares, and color spokes.” As he describes: “In my paintings, two important considerations, color and geometric order/disorder are my constant concern. […] Balancing the shapes and colors of pieces fascinates me daily.” Though his works are abstract, they are painted over a ground of newsprint, mixed with glue and sanded down. Such a literal (and literary) base adds a subtle visual texture to his works and serves as a clever foil for his decidedly non-literal compositions. Piller relishes the materiality of his medium, finishing each work with a layer of resin to give it a reflective sheen that brings the outside world in to the painting as well.
