Interests and Personality

BiographyRon Patterson studied art at the Central Academy of Art in Cincinnati, Ohio. Patterson worked for many years as a commercial artist and illustrator. "As an artist, what I'm most interested in is relationships". In each piece you can see the tension between abstraction and definition, the interesting relationships of colors, and the balance of light and dark. It's the intimacies between people that fascinate me. The relationships we have with others, with our pets, with the natural environment. "My scenes are mostly very specific and its not that I want to paint a portrait of Bud and Betty as much as I want to portray the essence of that moment. Whether they are flirting with each other on the dance floor, or having a quiet picnic in a field of wildflowers. I'm looking at a deeper level of communication that comes from the body, the atmosphere. That's why I don't have faces." It's almost an invitation for the viewer to fill in the details of themselves or their loved ones.

At 3.10 pm yesterday, Willy De Vuyst, my dad passed away. Alann


Hi artists, I am speaking on behalf of my dad, Willy, who was diagnosed with liver cancer last year in May. We still hope for a recovery, but the pain was to much and my dad refused Chemo and accepted his fate. he is the last stages of dying. Could be days or hours; he is on morphine and probably unconscious. I myself am in Cambodia working as a teacher. I heard him for the last time two Sundays ago over the phone. He had to stop the conversation as he had no more oxygyne, he said. "Dont' worry about me he said, I am capable of dealing with this". I don't know whether I have to take his page down or not? I pray for my dad and hope that he leaves without pain. sincerely Alann
