Originally from Kapuskasing, Ron Loranger is a queer Franco-Ontarian visual artist based in Toronto. His practice, usually entitled “Blobettes”, involves watercolour and India ink on Arches paper, but also takes the shape of painted installations in urban settings. Loranger is very much involved in the world of artist-run centres: indeed, he has been part of several boards and committees, such as BRAVO, Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario and Le Labo. His professional experience includes exhibits in private galleries in Toronto, New York City and Berlin, and in public galleries, such as Kapuskasing’s Galerie Paquin, the Sudbury Art Gallery and the Glendon York University Gallery, as well with the GNO with Blobettes in 2015. He also took part in the Biennial of Textile Art in San Jose (Costa Rica) and the FAAS. His works are part of private collections throughout North America and Europe.
