From the Reynolds gallery, Richmond, VA:

"Playful yet methodical, Ron Johnson’s process-driven work is defined by chance. Pouring pigmented polyurethane over wood panels, he investigates the effects of layering transparent color. In a recent Art Pulse interview, he states “The medium allows me to control (for the most part) this idea of translucency which in turn allows the viewer to access my work in layers. So viewers are literally able to see the archeology, or experience my thoughts in an archeology of seeing.” What they see is vibrant, abstracted landscapes simultaneously constrained and released in flowing pools of acrylic.

 

His work has been exhibited at Washington & Lee University, VCUarts Anderson Gallery, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Cite des Arts Gallery in Paris. His work is in numerous public and private collections including Altria Group, Capital One, the Federal Reserve Bank, and Markel Corporation."
