This event has ended.

Howard Scott Gallery presents a solo exhibition by the Philadelphia-based artist, Ron Klein.

Mr. Klein's work is rooted in his lifelong fascination with the manner in which man's understanding of both his own self and the world he inhabits is greatly predicated upon the individuals degree of interest in, and the sensitivity to, the objects which surrounds one in daily life – whether these be tangible objects of the natural world or objects – designed by and manufactured by man to fulfill a perceived, practical need. Klein's passionate attraction to the materials of the natural world has taken him during the past eighteen years, to such remote locales as Madagascar, Burma (Maynmar), and Amazonian and Costa Rican rainforests.

Artist Statement for Between Worlds exhibition:
Expansive travel to more than a dozen remote equatorial locations has been both the inspiration and source of my work. The infrastructures of these extraordinary rainforest habitats, replete with complex repetitive patterns, offer an abundance of objects, used to inspire and construct my sculpture. These organic materials are then combined with objects from our own urban jungle, where the motivating force is to depict how both exist simultaneously in a world of chaos and order. It is this synergy, which creates the visual, emotional and conceptual content and illustrates the delicate balance between natural and industrial environments.
I am searching for the order in chaos, and the chaos in order. Nature's symmetry of order, juxtaposed with the opposing force of industrial objects helps reconcile my concerns and delineate the fine line separating one from the other.

The smallest molecular structures are a source of infinite strength generating the larger world in which we live. The power of these tiny particles creates our physical realities. I believe that by observing and organizing these small visual components I may find my own connection to the larger world. Luck, chance and reason guide my work. The results are images that aid in my understanding of complexities I don't fully grasp.
