  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) December 11, 2015 - Born in Toronto, Canada, Ron Robidoux pursued his education at the San Francisco Institute of Art, and later became a US citizen. Robidoux's résumé is a long testament to his love of art: first working in an art supply store, he moved to art sales, then graphic design, which led him to his current occupation as a full-time artist. Robidoux travels extensively, always remembering to pack his brushes. "The difference of light in a place like central Italy compared to, let's say, southern England is very exciting to me," he says.

    Robidoux paints with watercolors, turning the natural scenes he loves into expressions of joy. His paintings are a haven from the unhappiness of the wider world: a place of purity that his viewers can enjoy. Painted with natural greens, browns, and blues, Robidoux's subjects, which range from isolated buildings to figures, exhibit an almost lonely calmness that pulls the viewer into each scene. For Robidoux, art is a means of communicating feelings. "If you can make that connection with someone," he says, "it feels great."

    About the Exhibition
    A Subjective Exhibition: Persistence of Form
    In the exhibition Persistence of Form, fifteen artists paint, draw, and sculpt invigorating subjects that stand starkly against their backdrops. Drawing from different schools of art, from Pop to Cubism, to Futurism and more, these artists pick and depict their subjects with great care. Their deliberate techniques and fascinating representations draw the viewer in and force true contemplation on the stories behind these subjects. Who are these people? Where are these looming towers? Even essential geometries find their own narrative. These artists draw us in and latch on to us, proving that in this ever-abstracting world, we will never truly lose the importance of form.
