"When the lights go down low" by Ronald Walton
"5 x 5" oil / paper on canvas
Ronald Walton was born in New York City and is currently a resident of Brooklyn, New York. He attended Brooklyn College and has been acclaimed for his creation of the “Rollcubistic” style of portraying human form. This unique technique of painting encompasses the use of round sphere-like balls patterned to form a humanistic figure. His use of color combination and depth creates a lavish and illuminating affect. Walton’s work can be found in public and private collections throughout the United States.
His early works featured collages showing the mean streets and the reality of hard economic conditions characteristics of the Civil Rights Era. By the late 1970’s, Walton social messages grew more surrealistic and became manifested in his “Rollcubistic” style. Walton’s abstract visions show the imprint of three principle influences: William Dekooning, Jackson Pollock, and Romare Bearden.
He is an Artist who is currently creating new work, regardless of his mood. “Art should be practiced in good, bad, high, or low spirits,” says Walton. He is multidimensional in his approach and works in pen and ink and pastels and oils. After nearly three decades of producing and exhibiting both nationally and internationally, Walton is poised and positioned to begin the twenty-first century as a major voice in the movement to express “cultural pluralism” through art.
