Ron Gresham: REFLEJOS PROPIOS (our own reflections)


Mixed media works on paper

Primarily composed of mixed media (colored pencil, pastel, etc.) on gesso-covered paper, the works in this exhibit are figurative experiments in color, exploring how shape and light can be represented with color and hue. El cuerpo, the body, is the theme, the center and the beginning.

Purposefully small, these drawings are intended to invite the viewer to move in closer, to filter out the outside, to take an intimate look at the details. Once inside, unexpected colors create a psychological world where familiar forms evoke memories, dreams and new reflections.

Ron Gresham was born in Huntsville, AL. He studied at the Corcoran School of Art while living in Washington, DC. He has lived in New York City since 1996.
