When the Words Stop

An original painting from Ran Stewart

30″ x 30″ Acrylic on Canvas – Gallery Mat

“In the silence between your heartbeats hides a summons, do you hear it?~Unknown
Artist Statement: In “When The Words Stop,” I’ve painted a moment of profound connection that transcends language. The two figures, sharing an umbrella, stand as a testament to the unspoken bond that can exist between souls. The blurred brush strokes and the cool, calming palette of blues and whites evoke a sense of peace and introspection. This piece speaks to the power of silent understanding and the deep emotional landscapes that words cannot always navigate.

“I love to capture a moment in time, be it passengers waiting for a train, people on crowded street, or a lone figure on a rainy night,” says Stewart. “There is simplicity in a moment, but the complexity of the story it tells is what fascinates me.”

Ran Stewart is a fine artist who works from his studio in Salt Lake City. He has shown work locally and nationally for over 30 years. Most recently several of his pieces have been adopted into the Permanent Utah Artist Collection at the Ray Olpin Union at the University of Utah.
