"A Walk on the Beach"

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.

"With this painting I am playing with the sense or idea of a painting as being a precious thing and our desire to get closer to see and touch. This is combined with the sense of a beach, a footprint and the nails. The incongruous nature of these things together. This sense of a painting being a trace or a record of a passing of time, a walk on the beach." -Ron Crawford
