Artist Statment

Ron King – Artist Statement

 

We see the world in layers of truthful representation, but what if our vision was opened to the shadows of the truth beyond the real?

My art is the unknown just beyond the familiar. I begin with a photograph and then go deep into the image itself to free the restless phantasmagorias within the still life. Through Stratomorphic Rendering, a digital media technique that involves painstakingly working through multiple artistically enhanced layers of each image, I coax out the heart of each piece to deliver a visual experience that offers more than reality.
