OLIVE FREE LIBRARY'S EXHIBITION RON DENITTO - SELECTED WORKS
The exhibition, Selected Works, focuses on four different themes: Ferguson, The Circus, Portraits, and Inscapes. Speaking of the Ferguson series, Ron says: “Mine is the language of painting, not photography. For a photographer to do a series of images on Ferguson it requires he or she to actually be there. For me, a painter, it is not necessary any more than it was necessary for Picasso to be in Guernica when it was bombed. I depend upon my imagination and painterly skills to project my feelings and understandings. Through my brush or whatever painting implement I choose, with my hand, I create images that do not correspond directly with what the eye sees but what my particular imagination forms. In my "Ferguson" series, the particulars of the events in Ferguson, Missouri are subordinated to something more basic and universal, abstracted images that represent aspects of racial conflict that extend beyond place and country.”
