About Me

I'm Ron,

I was born in 1952 in Southern California to Carmen and Edward Piercy. I am a self taught artist, meaning no formal schooling or training in the studio arts but art was everywhere in my life, my mother Carmen Rencorett was an artist as was her father and brothers. My mother’s family immigrated from Mexico to the United States and settled in Los Angeles where my Grandfather worked as a set painter for Paramount Studios. 

The numerous museums throughout California became our family’s weekend outings. I began making art at a very young age, my watercolor painting “Fall Color” took a blue ribbon at age eight. My father and I built a kick wheel and raku pit when I was fourteen. 

I discovered that sculpture was mu way of expression and thus began a long affair with the three dimensional realm of addition and subtraction. The seventies were filled with assemblage and construction pieces of found objects held together with wood and steel. The art work in the eighties concentrated on welded steel. By the nineteen nineties stone had found a way in and soon became the only medium on my bench. Thousands of hours and hundreds of pieces of stone met with chisel and hammer, carving away the unwarranted and leaving behind the imagined.

Now as a semi-retired artist I returned to where it all began, on the jewelers bench fabricating small sculptures of adornment and oil painting in abstraction.

You will find me at rpSterling located in New Mexico, where I have my painting, sculpture and jewellery studios.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

The creative process has been and continues to be the focus of my thinking and being. Throughout the day all that falls into my field of vision is considered through the filter of color, form, and texture. The idea of context and composition is inherent in nature, and is only considered when in the studio. This is not a critical form of thinking but simply a natural continuation of being part of the creation; the vision exists because I am participating in it. I use these images as a subconscious catalog that my conscience mind then draws upon when I’m in the studio. I create because I live in the creative sense of being. When I am not able to create, for whatever reason, I am not living as my true self. My happiness, and well being, lies in being my true self. Art is the minds commentary on creation.

Techniques

I use a variety of techniques. In my oil painting process my preferred surface is cradled panels for less than 24x36 inches. Once I go beyond 24x36 inches, my preference is stretched canvas. I paint with combination of straight oil, oil with alkyd, oil with wax. I use a combination of brushes, palette knives, and silicon scrapers. I find the combination of these tools allows me the freedom of complete expression.


Career Highlights

I find that at this point of my career it's not the number of shows, or where those shows have taken place, but the fact that I've been fortunate enough to make a living by creating art. My art is in collections on several continents, both private and corporate.

I have represented the United States in a Monumental Sculpting Symposium, held in Scripts Ranch, California. Not one to sit on my laurels  I am looking forward to many accolades and years more!
