Ronald Wendell Davis began painting as an abstract expressionist but as he continued his art education, he translated the abstract into a hard, geometric style that heightened the effects of optical illusions. He used colored polyester resins and fiberglass to craft illusionistic paintings like Paolo from 1966 to 1972. He does not view the world and abstract it like the Cubists, but instead seeks to make minimalist, meaningless abstractions with high aesthetic appeal. He is inspired by the painterly perspectives of the Renaissance and those of Duchamp.
