We want to introduce you to our newest artist member, Ron Meick (pronounced “Mike”)! In this current economic climate, we find Ron’s prints very timely, as he has a whole series that use commodity and stock charts as inspiration. (Check out one from his “Four Days” suite, at left.)
Ron Meick was born in Sidney, NE and received his BFA in Sculpture from RISD. He now lives and works in Arden, DE. He says of his work:
In a world economy, cultural changes are communicated quickly and can be originated anywhere on the globe. They can also move slowly and almost undetected to emerge as obvious. Both can be personally relevant. I believe in a pluralistic and inclusive process of object making. My work contains residue from the visual environment such as world events, archeological, economic, scientific and social developments. Of particular interest is chaos theory, in which slight change can lead to unknown results.
