REORGANIZING FRAGMENTS, RON EWERT’S MIXED MEDIA WORKS
The confusion is plain to see. But the pieces to be recomposed, perhaps, are less than expected. In his paintings, installations and conceptual assemblages, American artist Ron Ewert evokes the idea of a fragmented life, where negative space provides the playground in which to give meaning to his creations and perhaps to himself.
In his compositions and installations Ron juxtaposes objects in a non-linear way, playing with spatial ambiguity, with the physical and conceptual negation of the elements used and with dislocated semiotic associations.
