Ejecta Projects is proud to present “Mortal Portraits/Scraps/Grotesques & Other Personas,” an exhibition featuring heads and imagined portraits sculpted from found parts and outdated detritus by contemporary artist Ronald Gonzalez.

Opening Reception: October 4, 5-7 pm (free and open to the public)

Ronald Gonzalez’s recent series of sculpted heads present a cast of characters that are unsettlingly naturalistic and absurdly abstract. While some of the objects in his works are manipulated—sculpted into cheeks and foreheads—other components are left intact as zippers, soles of shoes, or discarded tools, but all bits and pieces are put in service as facial construction or costume. The resulting coterie of thugs and monsters, antiquated robots and battle-scarred warriors, bug-eyed aliens, and grotesque jesters calls for an exercise in perceptual shifts that allow for more than one visual interpretation, where the sculpture appears both an inanimate trash and embodied being.
