Ronald Nameth Characteristics




Nameth work's in two distinct styles - one is his own personal work, which is very much focused on light and energy and its manifestation into form.╩His work is very influenced by the tradition of Tantric painting which was a direct manifestation of light and energy into form. This interest in tantra art lead him to explore the use of electronics and video in the late 1960's.

During this time, he also began to collaborate with many other artists and composers, including John Cage in the first Musicircus and the first HPSCHD performances, ╩where he coordinated the films and lights for these environments.

These projects also prompted him to continue in collaborative projects with many artists, musicians, composers, which sometime resulted in documentary or semi-documentary films and videos which are the second main focus of his work.
