Ron Ehrlich

April 2 - 15, 2009 Boca Raton Gallery

Ron Ehrlich, a brilliant colorist, approaches the canvas with exciting energy. He achieves extraordinarily rich surfaces and remarkable subtleties of tone by using various techniques like splashing, burning, tossing, scraping, and brushing. This is American Action painting with an Asian difference. Ehrlich borrows techniques from Japanese Bizen pottery making and spent over five years in Japan studying this disciplined Asian art, returning to the U.S. to incorporate the three dimensional techniques and glazing processes with the spontaneity and fluidity of two dimensional painting.
