ron weis

b. 1947, American

Ron Weis' small paintings represent what he loves about oil paint.  It is a medium that allows for a wide range of subtly-varying applications on various kinds of surfaces.  Its flexibility endows small and often overlooked objects with expressive possibility.  In this instance, he uses as his subject something as disposable and mundane as a postcard, and in the act of painting has raised it to the level of icon.
