Ron Nyisztor is a mid-career Western Australian artist working with a wide range of materials and subjects; he has been exhibiting regularly since 1989. His consistent practice involves discarded building materials being used as part of the actual work and also as support grounds for paintings.
As still life subjects for paintings the found objects are incorporated into dynamic compositions. The mundane subject matter used in his work attains compelling intrigue; it communicates a sense of the metaphysical expressed through familiar and extra -ordinary means.
Ron Nyisztor was born in Fremantle and gained his BA in Design at W.A.I.T (now Curtin University) in 1979.
He has held regular solo exhibitions (Artplace Claremont WA; Gaswerk Gallery Schwabach, Germany; Gallery Plos, Vienna; Gorepani Art, Albany; Crawford Gallery Sydney, NSW; Gallery East, North Fremantle, as well as being part of many exhibitions, including the Mandorla Arts Award (1991, 1992 1996, 2000, 2007), The Australian Contemporary Art Fair (1994, 1996, 2000, 2002); Green Show with Suzumi Noda in Japan (2006); The Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital Annual Exhibition and Bunbury Biennale (2002, 2007).
