"There's something kind of intuitively alchemical I'm trying to do, and I don't know if sometimes it's really art that I'm trying to land at.  Sometimes it's outside of art." - Ron Athey

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Ron Athey forces the body to transcend it's confines.  His brilliance manifests as exorcism not only of, and for, the cauterizing of his own pain, but by pushing the boundaries of endurance through artistic expression,he shares his compassionate epiphany:  We all need to break free from the shackles placed upon the individual by society, family, religion and gender." - From Ron Athey's biography
