Red Meat

Dinner with Einstein

Artist Ron Oden employs his skills as a painter, illustrator and storyteller to translate his eccentric, extraordinary ideas into visually arresting artistic statements. He uses imagination in a pure sense, to compose with an essentially pictorial logic. Taking narrative as his subject matter, he technically and stylistically works out compositions visually, describing the human condition through fantastic imagery incorporating intense graphic impact. In Dragonfly, abstraction lurks at the heart of his female image, as her body seems to flow with the locks of her hair into what appears to be loose washes of translucent color. Brilliant oranges play off cool purples as one golden eye and one bright blue eye draw us into the scene. In Night Watcher, Oden uses his palette of cool colors to convey mood as he lures us into a garden seemingly fraught with good and evil.

Oden studied at El Camino College, Torrance, CA, Cuyamacha College, El Cajon, CA, and the Art Center, College of Design, Los Angeles, CA. He served as media graphics instructor, University of Nevada, Reno, from 2001-2003. Oden is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Bank of America achievement award; a first place: Best of Gannett for a body of work; 2003 APNEC (The Associated Press), first place, Yucca Mountain; and a room full of Best Illustration, Nevada Press Association awards. His painting Liberty’s Children resides in the New York State Museum and appears in "The Little Brown Handbook," 10th edition, Pearson Longman, publisher.
