PEMBROKE — A collection of stark sculptures by Ronald Gonzalez is on display at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke until Sept. 24.
A former artist-in-residence at Cornell University, Gonzalez blends found objects, charcoal and wax in his art. His work incorporates themes of “dread, irony and death,” according to a press release.
Gonzalez teaches Sculpture at Binghamton University in New York. He describes the pieces assembled for the exhibit, titled “Seeing in the Dark,” as “collections of collectibles, as capable of embodying and storing information that is far more sophisticated than anything possible by way of a computer chip.”
The exhibit can be viewed in the university’s A.D. Gallery, where a reception will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Sept. 2.
