Acrylic on Canvas by Ronnie Beets.
24 x 30 inches
"The goal of the work is to challenge the fundamental lens that society views the world through. The current culture operates on a daily basis forming opinions, making judgments, and responding to their surroundings with little to no question as to where their most basic beliefs come from. They operate on a borrowed ethos that so many are never even aware of; a society that encourages and rewards non-thinking."
Through his work, Ronnie hopes to change that. He encourages the viewer to forget everything they were ever indoctrinated with and experience the world based on pure intuition, rather than the fabricated reality that has been fed to them since birth. So many of the problems in society can be traced back to organized religion and the separatist mentality that it fosters. From here is born much of the prejudice, self-righteousness, racism, classism, materialism, and hatred of the world. Ronnie desires to awaken the viewer, often by referencing well-known works and symbols to lure them in. The eye locks in on something familiar, and once he has their attention he blatantly challenges what they thought they knew.
