Artist Statement:
  "The intention in all my work is to address the formal issues of painting, specifically, and the visual language paradigm, generally.  In other words, the effort to explore and understand or "realize the nature of painting".  At the same time I seek to record a specific visual and "feeling" response to the natural world; to light, to atmosphere, space, color, shape, form, and the symbolic, unique, or achetypal character of the subject matter.  My paintings are intended to be the expressions of the nature of Nature, the nature of painting, the nature of sense of place and time," and the nature of the experience of "Being."  In general I prefer to work from direct observation.  With regard to landscape this means working on location."

"Ron Boehmer describes what he sees with great accuracy and his own sense of beauty.  He has a great sense of atmosphere, depth, understanding and feeling for the locality he is painting.  It is almost a spiritual feeling that transcends the painting itself when you look at his work."  Ron has been a full time artist and instructor since 1971.  His work has been collected by museums, corporations, and private collectors throughout the United States.
