Ron Moppett

Ron Moppett’s paintings are carefully constructed abstractions. His paintings combine symbols, icons and repeating images that reference a diverse range of subjects from pop advertising to art history. Each element, when assembled together, relates to one another, their meanings often overlapping and evolving.  The paintings are similar to an archaeological excavation: layers of meaning waiting to be decoded. Moppett, however, is more interested in the abstract nature of his work and its relationship to culture than the specific narrative. He leaves it to the viewer to use our own experiences to create the meaning.
