RON ROYES & TOBIAS SPITZER
CONCUSSION .“...confusion caused by a blow on the head”
The exhibition at Back To Back Galleries is the result of the collaboration of techniques, styles, cultures and baffling experiences.
CONCUSSION explores the opportunites found in the relationship between two friends.
Through this friendship, Tobias introduced Ron to ceramics.
Later, during a period of illness, Ron explored the options of drawing on a tablet. This allowed him to create his drawings digitally and to use ceramic transfer decals. Ron’s figures are deeply connected to the here and now and are the result of careful observations.
Tobias, on the other hand, has quite happily created stoneware bowls for many years.
For this project red earthenware clay was chosen, featuring a white slip to emphasise Ron’s drawings.
Tobias’ process does not aim for perfection – movement and surface are his focus.
