The Figurative Series


Welcome to the art work of  Ronald Himler. Ron’s figurative oil paintings present a unique vision that challenges the viewer’s impulse to interpret the imagery. In these paintings, human figures are juxtaposed with architectonic features, sometimes with great clarity, sometimes muted, but always with an underlying enigma that the ordinary mind cannot grasp and categorize. As the mind lets go of its insistence on translating his elusive imagery into “statements” and “meaning,” what remains are the impressions of a world of form and color that invites us simply to look, to contemplate, and finally, to see.
