"Beach Rap #5"

Ron Crawford

Salt Spring Island artist Ron Crawford creates art with a unique combination of plaster and acrylic paint, resulting in a modern variation on the frescoes. The surfaces are carved, shaped, sanded and painted until they take on a rich, naturally eroded appearance.

"The ocean tide is like a jazz musician each time mixing and changing the forms of rock, shells and sand into another variation of the song.  I enjoy both jazz and the amazing forms of the beach. In these small works I try to capture some of its spontaneous nature and suggest the landscape I see underneath during my walks on the beach." - Ron Crawford
