Multi-media Ugandan artist….. Ronex Ahimbisibwe

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Artist’s statement
My visual journey mainly entails studio research in a quest to discover my own capabilities, strength and doubts by tapping into the magic of the subconscious.
Am always driven by one question, WHAT IF? I thrive on questions like what if I did this and that. What would be the outcome? It’s a joy in itself as one gets surprised by the process and reversal of known truths.
I believe expressing oneself creatively in whatever form isn't a straight line or shouldn't be limited by style, medium, rules and norms. In my view, creativity has no boundaries except those delimited by time and matter; one’s physical capacity for work in a quantifiable period of time-space. My desire has always been to create works that curiously blend in the fashion of the legendary double-edged sword: sophistication meeting naivety, chaos meeting order, beauty meeting ugliness, and aesthetics meeting free- expression and so on.

My art works has come to definitively embody my joy, frustration, inspiration and my perception into tangible objects.
In short my life’s journey as an artist (if I deserve to be called so) has become a self portrait with symbols or forms that might echo that or otherwise.

Further more, my work seeks to explain and attempts to answer questions about methods and materials and the effects of texture on one’s perception.

The artworks include paintings, sculptures, woodcut prints, digital art and photography, furniture and mixed media installations.
A wide range of materials I use include: wood, bark cloth, paper, filler paste, glues and raisins, oil, outdoor paints, fiber glass, banana fibers, sand, oxides, aluminum, zinc, bronze, sisal, recycled steel and cloth.
