Artist Ronit Baranga
Israeili Artist Ronit Baranga, b. 1973, uses clay and porcelain to craft her sculptures. Baranga’s process mainly involves using different kinds of clays such as liquid and solid clays for sculpting.
Baranga’s work is on the border between concrete and unreal life. This border allows her to express complex emotional feelings by creating anthropomorphic images- human and inanimate objects- combined as one (cups on fingers; masks with human mouths; hollowed, headless figures wearing masks; tea drinking ceremony using empty cups). “I believe that this combination in my art makes people feel. Viewers of my work react almost instantly- they are either enthusiastic or appalled, but never indifferent. I hope their reaction also stimulates them to think about the ideas behind my work.”
From the Artist, "the use of fingers and mouths in my work is full of intent and meaning. The fingers and the mouth are very sensual organs in the human body and are therefore very powerful as separated items from it. The “seamless” combination of these organs in plates or cups, appearing as one, creates, in my opinion, new items that “feel” their environment and respond to it.”
