Ronit Baranga

Israel artist, uses clay  and porcelain as a media.

"My art expresses my life as it is at any given moment. It emphasizes my thought and feelings  at the time. Some sculptures deal with feelings of los or unused abilities  - of which only the remains can be framed for display . Other sculptures represent the intimacy of a relationship  in a minimal way - a single mouth . Also, I have created a humorous sculpture of a grotesque situation, in which "weary" figures attempt to drink tea from an energetic tea set - an attempt to capture an almost impossible moment in life."

“I would like that anyone who seemy work feel something – what they feel is not relevant to me, as long as they feel. I hope that the emerging feelings will cause the viewers to thinabout the ideas behind my work… The combination of ceramic cups with ceramic fingers represent an idea in which the still creates a will of its own, enabling a cup to decide whether to stay or leave the situation it is in.”

“By combining ceramic sculptures of body parts within, the still object is transformed from a passive, used object, to an activ one with the ability to choose how to behave in an encountered situation: to feed or not, to shout, to stay or to escape. My works deal with emotional states and relationships”. 

"The use of fingers and mouths in my work is full of intent and meaning. The fingers and the mouth are very sensual  organs in the human body and are therefore very powerful as separated items from it. The “seamless” combination of these organs in plates or cups, appearing as one, creates, in my opinion, new items that feel” their environment and respond to it."
