Ron Fundingsland lives in a small town in southern Colorado. In a converted chicken coop at the north end of his backyard he turns out deliciously textured and probing intaglio prints. This summer Ron donated 23 prints, increasing his AP/RC archive to 63 works. In his prints he has fashioned an assortment of iconic objects, highlighting them with rich surfaces and pied grounds. Shells, weights, hearts, hands, ash trays, even the White House, framed by an aura of light, challenge us as clandestine emblems of some secret or confidence. In If He Can’t Have You, an opened tube of lipstick and a bullet guard a heart-shaped weight, reminding us that love can burden as well as gratify. The other work, Red Lily, exalts the lusciousness of a pollen-laden flower, blending the artist’s signature approach to subject matter with equal enthusiasm for botanical truth.
