Colors and architectural formations permeate Ron Piller's mixed-media artworks and create a sense of depth and curiosity. His minimalist artworks are created by layering newsprint, acrylic paint, and pencil marks on wood panels. He relishes the materiality of his medium, finishing the artwork with a layer of resin to give it a reflective sheen that brings the outside world into the painting. His abstract paintings have been exhibited at art fairs and galleries internationally and have found a home on collectors’ walls worldwide.

This 59 inch tall by 48 inch wide original blue-green artwork has a hint of yellow undertones and can be installed as a vertical or horizontal work. The surface is covered with a smooth layer of clear, glass-like resin, which enhances the colors and adds depth. The sides are finished in a separate process, creating more layers and detailing. It is signed, titled and dated by the artist on the back. It does not require framing and is wired and ready to hang. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.

Los Angeles artist Ron Piller takes his inspirations from travelling extensively all his life. He has been fortunate to visit many beautiful and fascinating countries including India, Vietnam and most recently Cuba. Ron notes “every dilapidated building and car is an inspiration and feast for the eye.”

"Color and geometric order/disorder are my constant concern. Beginning each painting I seek to create a subtle but visually engaging ground which serves as a foil to the next layers of geometric shapes - all contained within or challenging the penciled grid. Balancing the shapes and colors of pieces fascinates me. Often I will place a strong color or shape anywhere, knowing that the challenge to engage it successfully is so satisfying. I finish the front of my work with resin, as it provides a window into the work. It is my desire to convey to the viewer my humble recognition of the Mystery that we live in and the spiritual which creates, infuses and envelops all."

His series of geometric minimalist abstractions consist of conversations between colors in a defined space yet at the same time the infinite. The geometric shape tries to contain the colors, but the colors demand, emerge, transform and dazzle.

About Ron Piller

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.
