"Understanding Underneath - Diptych"

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.

"One of the things important to me as an artist is that how something was made is as mysterious as the what it represents. I love that a work suggest to the viewer places, surfaces or even emotions that I have not intentionally set out to do. I invite the viewer to participate in order to understand. The clue of how this work is made is in the twin nature of its two parts." - Ron Crawford
