Ron Ulicny’s “new works,” an art show featuring his surrealistic deconstructed sculptures, is currently on display at the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco.
In his newest body of work, Ulicny utilizes his fascination with transforming an esoteric plethora of familiar objects, in unfamiliar positions in order to create classic and modern innovative sculpture. “new works” will feature thirteen new pieces, each which present a unique take on the three-dimensional form.
As much a craftsman as artist, Ulicny strives for individuality in each of his creations. Instead of merely classifying his work as “assemblage or “found” objects, the artist puts specific intention, meaning and weight behind every detail in his work. Armed with a keen eye for design and illustration, Ulicny pushes boundaries of sculptural work that pushes and pulls the viewer in with both thoughtfulness and humor. With his visceral constructions, Ron challenges our initial perceptions of life, experience and everyday happenstance thus creating simple yet stunning affects.
Ron is a trained artist, photographer, musician, and craftsman, who lives and works in Portland, Oregon. His “new works” will be on show through March 22, 2012, at the gallery.
