Wild Horses: The Art of Ronnie Wood
October 13, 2016 - November 2016
Ronnie Wood was born into an artistic family in Middlesex, England. Before pursuing music professionally, he received formal art training at Ealing College of Art at London. Ronnie continued to paint and draw, even after his music career progressed with the Jeff Beck Group, the Faces, and the Rolling Stones. His typical subjects ranged from musicians he admired to family and close friends, both inside and outside the music industry.
Throughout the years, Ronnie has nurtured both his artistic and musical sides. It is as natural to find him with a pencil as with a guitar, drawing portraits of contemporaries and finding inspiration from his musical influences.
In America in the early 1980’s, Ronnie produced his first prints – three woodcuts and a series of monotypes. Not yet an experienced printmaker, he enthusiastically seized upon an opportunity in 1987 to spend several months working in a professional printmaking studio in England. Since then, he has devoted a considerable amount of time to printmaking and has produced a number of images using various techniques—namely etching, drypoint, screenprint, and digital.
Over the years, Ronnie’s work has received worldwide attention and acclamation. The Museum of Modern Art in Sao Paulo, Brazil hosted his retrospective exhibition in 1996. Alternately, he has presented numerous one man exhibitions in North and South America, the far East, and throughout Europe.
