About Ron Cooper

Ron Cooper’s paintings plunge us into a world of reflections and mirror images of memory and fantasy using richly layered oils to achieve a deep painted surface of literal and metaphorical figurative landscapes. Ron’s process involves an image library of reference photos, drawings and internal visions, referring at once to influences both historical and contemporary. Ron was awarded the prestigious Nancy Jo Abeles scholarship at SUNY Purchase where he earned his BFA. He also studied at the School of Visual Arts and the Art Students League in NYC, The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and was awarded 2 consecutive scholarships to attend the New York Summer School of The Arts at Fredonia, NY. Ron has been invited to attend several artists in residence programs and his work can be found in private collections both in the US and internationally. Ron actively pursues a parallel career as a Visual Artist, Designer and Stonemason. Born in Los Angeles in 1966, He spent much of his early career in New Mexico and currently works out of Mount Shasta, California.
