The Unconventionals


RON EADY The Unconventionals Solo exhibition in the Main Gallery March 4 – 25, 2017

Opening reception, Saturday March 4, 2017, 1 – 4 pm The artist will be in attendance


Ron Eady was born in Toronto and educated at a secondary school for the visual arts, as well as Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, with additional studies at The Ontario College of Art, Toronto. In 2000 he became an elected member of The Ontario Society of Artists (O.S.A.)

Ron spent his formative years focused on drawing and painting. Over the past decade he has primarily painted with the encaustic medium, as well as sculpting in wood with the application of encaustic.

His works explore the feeling of unsettled or elusive imagery, whether it’s an industrial landscape, figurative work or organic formations, creating an atmosphere of uncertainty.

Working between two studios – one in Hamilton and one in Rosseau, Muskoka, Ontario – has inspired two separate yet complementary commentaries on landscape that are both urban & rural, industrial and natural.

“The Unconventionals.....who are they?....with the sculptures I will usually just start working on the shape, embracing the character of the old wood beams, utilizing chainsaws, saws and chisels until an interesting personality emerges into the final form. Some of the paintings, like the sculptures, are depictions of imaginary characters that emerge through the working process. For others the starting point is based upon old black and white snapshots or personal photos which evolve into more imagined situations. With these works, I like to explore the feeling of unsettled imagery. I want to create an atmosphere of uncertainty.”

Ron’s work has been featured in numerous publications. He has exhibited internationally and his paintings are held in collections in the USA, Canada, Japan and China.
