Today we’d like to introduce you to Ronald Sanchez.
Ronald Sanchez is a practicing artist and also the director and co-founding member of Laundromat Art Space
an artist-run gallery in the neighborhood of Little Haiti in Miami.
In 2015 Sanchez joined alumni from Bakehouse Art Complex and Art Center of South Florida founded Laundromat Art Space.
Sanchez is a mixed media artist that uses conceptualism and visual poetry, his work incorporates an eclectic assortment of surfaces as his canvas. He brings new life to otherwise overlooked items from everyday life, such as reclaimed wood, street signs, paint cans, and other found objects, through typography and abstraction. His work is held by private collections nationally and internationally.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I really like to make assemblages and installations, where I reclaim found objects or recycle old paint cans that I have used before in the past to create other works. I give them new life, this style is called retinal art or readymades like Duchamp in 1917 when he took a urinal and displayed it, a lot of people feel that he changed art forever.
I also do a lot of text-based work, it’s really fun to make. I feel with text you get what you see. (It’s in your face) it’s a very direct and easy way to convey a message.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I’m currently part of an exhibition called ‘HUSTLE’ at the Frank Gallery in Pembroke Pines it runs from September 6 – October 26. The exhibition focuses on work that explores the pop-sensibilities of South Florida’s urban art with an emphasis on process, labor, and work.
Also, you can visit me in my studio at Laundromat Art Space in Little Haiti.
