NOTE: As of June 2014 I have created a new website just for my artwork: www.RamonKubicekArt.com. Please head on over there to view my newest painterly pursuits.

Since moving here three years ago and building a studio, I have been able to work more often and more freely. These paintings represent some of the work completed since January 2013. The silence and beauty of the mountain forests allow my imagination to roam. Stylistically, I identify with forms of new expressionism and metamodernism, and I tend to range from full figuration to full abstraction.

My background includes growing up in Montreal, studying art and literature there, and then studying art in England while I also explored different spiritual traditions and worked at a number of venues, from children’s theatre to building construction to wine tastings for a German shipper. For over twenty years I have been teaching full time at Langara College and Emily Carr University—art, creative writing, and film studies.

The subjects of these paintings represent my feelings about the interrelationships of the personal and the communal worlds. When I look around the world, I see that we are besieged by dreams, and we struggle to breathe. This is a time of potential devastation and also potential recovery. We are on the brink of both. My work explores how we try to cope with these polarized forces, and it examines how we re-live ancient myths daily.

At the same time, I just enjoy the act of painting, the act of creating with no-mind.
