Ronit Baranga is an Israeli contemporary artist who has always been attracted to creating art. Once she became introduced to clay, she became quickly addicted to the medium. Her figurative artwork deals with emotional states and relationships. Baranga’s creations have been displayed in museums and galleries around the world and are a part of many museum and private collections.
From August 19th to September 9th, 2017 the Booth Gallery, NYC will present “Embraced”, a solo exhibition of sculptures by Ronit Baranga. In her new series, Baranga blurs the border between living and still by depicting human mouths and fingers emerging from common tableware. “Embraced” examines ideas surrounding internal personas and how those personas interact with their environment. Baranga reimagines fine china with sensual organs, casting pieces as active objects. The china is now aware of itself and can interact with its surroundings. Sets lean on each other, pinching, hugging, and embracing. Between pain and pleasure, their ceramic bodies react to unique experience.
