Amazon Art Collectors Pick of the Week - Ron Piller Intention #2, 2013

I recently participated in a collaboration with Amazon Art where I was asked to curate a selection of pieces from their collection. In an effort to share my picks, I’m doing be a weekly post highlighting a different artists from my selection.

First up to bat is Ron Pillar who created this mixed media piece Intention #2. Ron likes to create his pieces by layering newsprint and paint on wood panels and sanding them slightly.

I love how Ron plays with text, language and materiality in this piece. Also, visually it looks really cool too. Check out this piece and more here - http://www.amazon.com/b?node=9161481011
