Ron Moppett’s paintings are carefully constructed abstractions. His paintings combine symbols, icons and repeating images that reference a diverse range of subjects from pop advertising to art history. Each element, when assembled together, relates to one another. In “Studio/Light 3”, the canvas is divided into six sections, which contain abstract imagery that reference its title: a chair, a table, a candle, a light bulb, and sunset. Moppett, however, is more interested in the abstract and aesthetic nature of his work rather than the specific narrative of each object. He leaves it to the viewer to use his or her own experiences to create meaning.

Ron Moppett
(1945)

Ron Moppett is a painter living and working in Calgary, Alberta. Moppett attended the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary from 1963 to 1967, and the Instituto de Allende in Mexico in 1968. Drawing inspiration from a variety of historical and cultural styles, the artist offers a diverse view of pop culture and a glimpse into the "dailiness" of life. In addition to his painting practice, he has worked as a curator and a teacher. He has exhibited extensively throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe, and two major surveys of his work have been organized by the Walter Phillips Gallery at The Banff Centre in 1982 and Glenbow Museum in Calgary in 1990. Moppett's work can be found in many prominent private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, the Art Gallery of Alberta, Glenbow Museum, and the MacKenzie Art Gallery. Moppett’s career includes a number of honours, exhibitions, publications and awards, including numerous Canada Council grants and the prestigious Gershon Iskowitz Prize in 1997.
