Ron Peters executes works of
remarkable precision and realism while showcasing his individual
style. His attention to detail stems from an extensive background
in art and design. A native of Southern California, the artist draws
inspiration from the area, or more importantly, the eternal beach,
which he portrays through a bold use of color.
His love for the tropical
is readily present in his bright compositions, which are at once
contemporary and timeless. Ron's use of strong light, coupled with
subtle sands and ocean, depict nature in a tranquil mood, yet his
paintings are illuminated with vibrancy and vitality. The artist's
singular ability of capturing the imagery of tropical islands goes
beyond mere representation, taking the viewer into a natural world
that is beautiful and mystically serene. "My paintings are meant
to take you back to the islands and a place for your heart to rest
or the mind to stray, if only for a moment," Ron says. " My intention
is to capture the peacefulness of a moment through the use of light
An avid traveler, Ron uses
opportunities abroad to inspire and record ideas for future reference.
Capturing the perfect moment is a tribute to the artist's ever searching
eye for detail - an ability to discover and refine the gifts of
the natural world. At any moment, Ron may drop what he's doing to
sketch a scene, throwing caution to the wind.
When not directly exploring
his all-encompassing love of art, Ron enjoys gardening, biking and
visiting the gym. In the artist's own words: "Since I am drawn to
water I like to represent it in various forms, such as an ocean,
lake or pool. The composition may be real or fantasy. To capture
a state of fantasy or a piece of mind is my goal in every piece.
Each is full of contrasting elements and dramatic detail to add
to its realism: a visual experience that draws the viewer in and
keeps them there. It is all a matter of escape.
I hope my pieces keep inviting
the viewer back to visit my world again and again." The invitation
stands to explore Ron's singular vision. In addition to the artist's
original paintings, Pierside Gallery will soon release a series
of limited edition lithographs featuring Ron Peter's work . . .
