Charis Bio - Rondall Reynoso


Back to Biographies

Rondall Reynoso was raised in the Sacramento area in California and educated in New York City where he received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Pratt Institute along with a Masters in Art History. In 2007, he moved to central Louisiana to head the Art Department at Louisiana College where he teaches painting, drawing, and art history. Reynoso has exhibited in more than 30 group and solo exhibitions including Pamela Skinner/ Gwenna Howard Contemporary Art in Sacramento, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Williamsburg Art & Historical Society in Brooklyn, the River Oaks Art Center in Louisiana, the Francisco Carlos Moriconi Cultural Center in Suzano, São Paolo, Brazil, and at colleges including Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design, Kingsborough College, and Ouachita Baptist University. He has been profiled and his work reviewed across the nation in regional media, including newspapers, television and radio. Reynoso’s formal abstraction deals heavily with metaphors, both sociological and theological, which are based in his faith including the exploration of the boundaries between 2-D and 3-D as a metaphor for the relationship between the corporeal and the spiritual. His work strives toward the as yet unrealized metaphoric synthesis of the corporeal nature of our existence with the eternal, the rational, and the moral.
