Ron Baron: Ode to A Void
November 4, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Ron Baron’s solo exhibition, Ode to A Void. In this show, Baron’s slip-cast ceramic shoes are presented in a large spiraling swirl in the center of the space.
Baron’s work is infused with a quiet, somber magic – one that references memory or loss and the temporal nature of moments. The shoes in his installation seem both bound by gravity and freed from it as certain shoes ascend off the floor, hinting at play or a remembered game. Possessed of a ghostlike beauty, the spiraling walk of the shoes mimics the meandering walks of children’s feet that skip and weave through the world observing and taking in. The sculptures also hint at the manner in which absence or loss is a strong presence for those who are left behind. In a place where someone once stood walking a life path, what remains is an empty stark white shoe.
