Ron Gilad was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, but currently lives and works in New York City. His hybrid objects combine material with aesthetic play. They sit on the fat, delicious line between the abstract and the functional. His works deal with the relationship between the object and its function, questioning our perceptions.
Varying from one-off to limited editions and production pieces, the works have no “expiration date” and reside in both public and private collections worldwide. Gilad asks unceasing questions in 3D form and fabricates answers that create an arena for fertile doubt. Metaphorically, Gilad is a linguist, creating his own language. He learns the origins of “words” and develops new “synonyms”.
