Born in 1959, and living all his life in Southern Ontario, Ron Kingswood has painted this countryside most of his existence. The natural world has played an important role in the development of his paintings.
In the stillness of his wildlife paintings, Kingswood captures that subtle, tranquil sensation familiar to avid campers, early morning hikers and anyone seeking an escape from the chaotic world dictated by technology.
Kingswood himself is no stranger to the feelings his paintings invoke. His life in Southwestern Ontario as a hunter and resident has provided ample first-hand contact with the wildlife he recreates on canvas. Only one who has spent a life immersed in such an environment could reproduce the immensely personal feeling experienced while out in nature. These interactions with the natural landscape and its inhabitants can be traced back to Kingswood’s time with his family.
