Interaction with people has been the basic premise of Ron Pekar's commissioned artworks for more than 35 years. Represented in more than 600 corporate, public, civic, museum, university and private collections worldwide, Pekar's design theory evokes a sensitivity to the site and to the perceptions of the viewer/participant. Pekar has extensive experience in working with architects, designers, city planners and other civic officials from conceptual design to installation in large-scale, site-specific projects and theme parks. The scope of his work varies from monumental, multimedia outdoor environments to individual oils on canvas. He is well versed in working with a broad range of materials, which include all forms of painting, bronze, steel, stone, aluminum, concrete, clay/glaze, tile, brick and fiber. In addition, many projects incorporate light and/or sound, and/or water with traditional art forms.
Recently, Pekar has focused on large scale sculpture and memorial projects. Most works incorporate life size or larger bronze images as the primary subject. Additional elements such as steel (stainless or corten), cast concrete and stone (granite or marble) are often utilized with water and/or light effects to embellish each site specific environment.
