Study to investigate a shift in color palette.
All works are acrylic on stretched canvas, unframed and trimmed in a neutral gray which gives the work the appearance of floating.
My work has been referred to as complex paintings that are a testament to the marriage of chaos and order. The imagery can take on the appearance of sheet music or extraterrestrial landscapes filled with nonsense characters, calligraphy and scribbling.
The work is not without restraint; letting chaos out of the box but containing it with some sense of order that invites the viewer to enter the fray.
(1952) Ron Fortier, the son of a Portuguese mother and a Canadian father, is an American artist living in Portugal. Retired from a 40+ year career as a Marketing and Advertising practitioner and educator in the United States, he has returned to painting, his original career goal, and exhibits internationally.
He is originally from New Bedford, Massachusetts, USA. and received his BFA in painting in 1975 from the University of Massachusetts. In 1977, he received his MFA in Painting from the University of Miami on a full-ride scholarship.
Ron Fortier has participated in various group and individual exhibitions in the United States. In 2011, he returned to painting in earnest and has exhibited consistently since then with three solo shows in Europe since 2016.
He currently lives and works in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and maintains another studio in Buarcos, Figueira da Foz on the Silver Coast of the Portuguese mainland. To view more of his work and for more information visit: www.ronfortier.net
When I’m asked why did I want to be an artist, well I don’t remember wanting to be anything else. I am a painter. That in itself is a statement.
I still believe, as Picasso believed, that I must be, “…always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” That is the only way to grow as an artist; to give up on the illusion of control and to understand that success comes from facing the conflicts existing between our desires and reality.
I don't title my paintings. What may be referred to as the title is actually a simple catalog number with letters indicating the batch or series, the number of the painting in the series and the year painted.
All paintings are signed on the back with "title" and my chop stamp.
