Artist Statement courtesy of Morgan Lehman Gallery.

My work is first a response to the world and then a reaction to what it has to offer. Images surround me as abstract concepts, presented by the curious interaction of forms, feelings, and situations. They offer a glimpse into the way the world is constantly being reloaded with opportunities and options for reinterpretations and impressions. It might start with a beam of light passing through a window in the afternoon and that within that beam there is the potential of a full spectrum to appear. In my paintings I try to create the feeling of getting lost in the thoughts that are easily ignored or put aside. Many of my paintings will come from moments seen in films or articles read in the newspaper or simply from a walk down the street. The images tend to be of non-places where the specifics of them are not important but how the elements within the picture interact as parts of another world that is sometimes jarringly familiar to our own. It might be seconds away from becoming reality or lifetimes in the past as a fleeting memory.

Read THIS interview to learn more about him.

From his website:

About the artist:
Ron van der Ende is a sculptor living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. The original color and texture of the wood is utilized to form a gripping and realistic mosaic. The realism is further enhanced by the perspective built into the relief. Van der Ende uses his method to conjure up dark industrial and space age imagery.

Statement (courtesy of his website):

I view my paintings as two-dimensional, topographical readings of three-dimensional surfaces rendered with a handmade aesthetic. I work within a limited system with specific rules. I consistently rely on one process, one orientation, and one modular shape. My painting materials are reduced to glue, pre-mixed craft paint, and food coloring, as well as dried and colored glue remnants taken from previously or simultaneously-made paintings. I choose to work within this specific economy in order to force innovation and a deeper investigation into certain nuanced relations in space, color, surface, and composition. It is the possibility of exploration and variance that exists within such a seemingly confining system of working that engages me.
