RON RUMFORD sees his prints as maps or tracings of abstract journeys. They can be metaphors for real, physical travels, or completely imagined. He likes the tension that develops between the line and the shapes the line makes. The irregular shapes of the printing plates further imply that time and space are distorted and are never what we think they are. He does not want to prescribe how the prints should be viewed. His best hope is that the viewer will simply think less, and therefore see more. Mr. Rumford received a B.F.A. at the University of the Arts and studied at the Tyler School of Art, Rome, Italy. He lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. Rumford’s work was recently included in the exhibition, Rethink/Ink: Mixit Studio at 25 at the Boston Public Library and Flirting with Abstraction: Modern and Contemporary Art of Philadelphia at the Woodmere Art Museum, Philadelphia.
