Ronald Forbes

I am an artist who is primarily a painter, but I have also made films throughout my career. I am a figurative painter, but the term “imagist” may be more appropriate, since the human figure in my work is usually de-constructed and re-assembled, synthesised from a range of fragments of images which carry traces of recognition from their source, but which have gained a new identity in their new juxtaposition. These fragments are painted illusionistically as if they are collaged, even including the effect of the torn edge of the paper.

My work, both paintings and films, is about belief, illusion and reality, and the fuzzy edges between these. The viewer is a necessary participant in this imaginative dialogue.
