Everything Ron Does

Online Home of Ron Ehmke & Co.

And just who IS Ron Ehmke, anyway? He's a writer, performer, media artist, curator,  archivist, editor, minister, and other things. He often refers to himself in the third person. This site is a work-in-progress, but so is life itself, so keep stopping by and see if anything has happened since your last visit.

 

Allow me to introduce my dear friend, collaborator, mentor, PR client, and all-around thorn in my side, Mr. STONEY CONNORS. Stoney does not have the money or patience to maintain his own website at the current time so I have offered him the use of a page of mine for a small fee which he has not yet and surely never will pay me.

Now 75 years young, self-described "cross-platform savant-garde hypermetafactionalist" Mr. Connors has been called "the least influential, most influenced artist of his generation" by somebody somewhere once. He is both a “minimal maximalist” and a “maximal minimalist” whose works range in length from 6 seconds to 17 years, and in quality from middling to sub-par. After a thoroughly undistinguished career in the 1960s and 1970s, Connors went into self-imposed exile when First Lady-President Nancy Reagan was elected and the “War on Drugs” began. (Some call it exile, others "a very long nap.")

 

In 2013 Connors re-emerged from obscurity, vowing to archive long-forgotten projects, resume work on long-abandoned series, and thrust headlong into new ones. Having quit film, video, music, and performance art for three decades, he now embraces the digital revolution, exploring both the bleeding edge of “internest art” and mainstream teen culture, taking a particular interest in girls between the ages of 12 and 17 of European and Asian descent whose parents' combined income is in excess of $195,000 before taxes.

 

In 2013 Connors launched a “YouthTooth” channel (he doesn’t always get the names of social networks right) to post his 1000-part WRECKING BALL VARIATIONS series of Miley Cyrus tributes, plus forthcoming homages to fellow experimental artists, to be performed by and for cats.
