Artist Bio:

Ron Kingswood (b.1959, Ontario, Canada) currently lives and works in Sparta, Ontario. He studied at H.B Beal in London, Ontario and received a degree in Bird Ecology and Ornithology at The University of Western Ontario. Kingswood has exhibited internationally at both private and public galleries, and his work is included in many public 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.

Artist Statement:

Produced during a self-imposed exile from his lauded representational work, Kingswood departed from literal references in search for something intangible over an eight year period of unlearning conventions. Merging visceral and abstract sensibilities, the paintings in this series seek to illuminate the mysteries of our environment. Throughout his forty year career, Kingswood has devoted his practice to investigating our interconnectedness to the external world, reawakening the allegorical potential of nature; linking the flux of its phenomena to the spiritual realm.
