Ronnie Heeps is the most eclectic of all our artists within the gallery: sound, word, projected image and art fuse together beautifully - it's easy to get wax lyrical about his repertoire. His focus nowadays is predominantly painting.
The artistic adventure for Heeps started with lighting for luminaries such as Nico and The Orb, his complex and imaginative lighting designs have ignited lighting extravaganzas in theatres, clubs, huge outdoor events as well as video and live art installations. His work has been revered in Germany, Austria, France as well as the UK. Heeps clearly has an analytical side and he had no qualms in his deconstruction of Bosch's 'Garden of Earthly Delights' then reconstructing it again. Critic Ralph Deeson saw the intangible in his work when he described his paintings as 'somewhat alarming metaphorical works' because of this they are utterly engaging.The range Heeps is capable of is astounding and within the examples of his work here you will find fine-art portraits as well as multifarious compositions. His most recent work is that of the Kaleidoscope Collection and at 1.5m in diameter the scale, impact and originality in his use of circular canvas, colour and symmetry is quite stunning. Ronnie Heeps has rarely exhibited in galleries as his reputation precedes him; the bulk of his work in the past has been private commissions and work within performance art. As well as the originality of the Kaleidoscope Canvases, Heeps' recent ghost-paintings are interesting for the buyer who is looking for something completely different. A fine art portrait is undertaken then covered in white to create the illusion of a ghost like appearance. This was a difficult technique to master but the results and the eerie illusion created were well worth the effort. On one hand it is minimalist on the other deeply involved.
Ronnie Heeps has a talent of such magnitude, range and originality; it's no wonder his work up until now has been predominantly commissions with a reputation of such skill and ability.
