Ron Sims: Profile
Ron Sims has been regularly exhibiting his work, which is held in both public and private collections, for over 40 years. The psychological implications of turning soft imagery into a hard-edge, geometrical representation are a vital element in his work, - ideas which were evolved in the Life Drawing Room at the Royal Academy Schools as a post-graduate art student.
His printmaking and painting techniques, started to evolve during the exciting Pop and Op-Art era of the late 60's - 70's at Colchester and Manchester Colleges of Art and the Royal Academy Schools. His abstract print images explore imaginative, restructured, living forms. Ron works mainly at Gainsborough's House Print Workshop in silkscreen, photo-silkscreen, monoprinting and etching, the workshop is a thriving open access facility which offers courses and workshops for beginners through to experienced printmakers. Ron joined Gainsborough's House Print Workshop in 1999. He exhibites widely with solo and group shows.
