DUBLIN.- Ronnie, currently one of the worlds most collected artists, unveiled his new Paint it Black series at Gallery Number One, 1 Castle Street, June 19th. The exhibition shows over 40 pieces of original artwork and limited edition screen prints to the value of E650,000.
Ronnies most recent collection, Paint it Black, is a series of 5 individual prints which makes up Ronnies visually captivating suite of portraits of the Stones. Originally painted with acrylic paint and oil pastels on black paper these images are unlike anything previously seen in Ronnies catalogue.
With his signature gesturing style of simple and elegant lines, that can convey anything he chooses, has conjured from a black void, the soul of the Rolling Stones. By not allowing our view to be distracted by anything other then the lines and colors in his command, he has been able to perfectly express the swaggering ballet of Keith, the soleful siren song of Lisa, the rhythmic charge of Charlie, and the vamping powerhouse Mick.
The exhibition also showcases work from Ronnies Jazz and Blues suite plus the Faces, Well Meet Again and Wa Wa Wood collections.
Ronnie has been painting and drawing since age 12, even longer than he has been playing guitar. As an ongoing part of his multi-career, he paints the musicians with whom he plays, documenting his world tours and recording sessions in vibrant action portraits.
