Ralph Stout

 

 Ralph Stout graduated from Bucknell University in 1960 with a degree in mathematics and an interest in the visual arts. When a brief attempt to pursue a career as a fine artist and came to grief, he joined ACT, a computer software firm and remained there for 18 years. Eventually, he and a some others left the company to build TAS, an animation system for small computers. When NTT bought TAS, Stout turned his attention to other interests, notably music synthesis and voice compression. As luck would have it, the private placement memorandum for his fledgling music synthesizer company went out days before the calamitous 1987 stock market crash. With that avenue of endeavor closed for the foreseeable future, he joined Information Builders, a software vendor based in New York city and remained there for many years. Despite the demands of this series of highly-technical day jobs, Stout continued to find time for painting and drawing, and when the opportunity finally arose to devote all of his time to these pursuits, he jumped on to it. Over the past several years, Stout has become an accomplished abstractionist. His paintings on canvas, which often exploit the visual tension between the putative foreground and the background of an image, tend to be colorful and hard-edged. His works on paper reveal an accomplished draughtsman's attitude toward abstract form.
