Tropical Surrealism

Posted on July 23, 2015 at 12:38pm 0 Comments

Since Magical Realism is so big in Colombia, I have decided to do a series of abstracts entitled Tropical Surrealism.  See recent postings on the Blog Section of rloliverartist.com.

Abstractions are neither easily definable or easily accomplished.  I find that what I call an abstraction, meaning lifted out of the realm of the specific to the realm of the general, is not seen as such by others, instead, they are often called expressive works.  So, I have tried to…


Salsa and Syncopation

Posted on March 11, 2015 at 8:37am 0 Comments

My recent work has tried to express the syncopated rhythm of salsa music visually.  I have had mixed results that found expression in the work called Salsa Struggles.  I am not sure if I have posted it TAC or not, but know I have on fanartreview.com and believe I did so on my website rloliverartist.com.  Regardless, my follow the bouncing ball portrayal of eight beats to the measure music has not been fondly received... or so it seems.  Interested in hearing feedback about it.

Hi R.L.

Did you get a chance to view my 2013-14 BEROL PRISMACOLOR PENCILS drawings? They are not included in the slide show panel.

You have really extended your portfolio. Love the colours. They convey the country - without hesitation.. there's a big hint of nature worship in there, which I find most appealing-

Aloha Ron

yes, these are all the completed pieces of work, to be put on display this Sunday morning at 7 AM. I completed 28 pieces, gave four pieces away as birthday presents & had two pieces stolen out of my truck a couple of months ago. The latter story had a silver lining to it after i got over it.

I'll include photo's of them all, since I have them all on camera.
