Israeli artist Ronit Baranga creates ceramic sculptural works. Ronit describes as existing on the “border between living and still life”. She sculpted human mouths and fingers emerging from the tableware. The blurred border between the living and the still in these works is intriguing.
Baranga depicts dishware as sprouting human fingers and gaping mouths as the objects traipse across tabletops or physically cling to one another in a permanent embrace. The pieces are both silly and sinister as they come to life as if from a cartoon. Ronit most recently had work on view at the Gross Anatomies show at the Akron Art Museum.
