Rona Pondick

Rona Pondick

Rona Pondick was born in 1952 in Brooklyn (New York) and lives and works in the United States.
Pondick is an artist who adds a new reality to the real, but never interprets the materiality of the world by the means of an image. On the contrary, she confronts us with the reality and the hard immediacy of an “objectness” molded with her own hands. In her recent sharply focused work, the authenticity of these objects is reinforced by impressions taken from her own body (skull, face, hands). Pondick superimposes her own face on a dog or monkeys or other animals, and when her face is fused with the body of a dog, the dog becomes a sphinx.
Hybridity is in many ways a characteristic of Rona Pondick's works. Half-man, half-animal or plant, precisely hand-crafted or aided by state-of-the-art computer technology, with surfaces partly cold and shiny, partly matt and hyper-realistic, Pondick's sculptures often make a disturbing impression. The element of metamorphosis is a central theme. Pondick seems to link the ancient world of Egyptian sphinxes, Greek centaurs and Ovidian mythology with the psycho-surrealist drama of Kafka's Metamorphosis.
