Ron Gilad is known for his mischievous play with scale and proportion as he manipulates the objects we encounter daily—and more often than not take for granted—causing us to look at them anew, and perhaps with a touch of puzzlement. It would be hard for anyone to deny that Gilad has a knack for making you look twice.
As well as perhaps being a little uncanny, there's also something about some of his pieces that can really bring a smile to your lips. Which is exactly how we feel about his IX Mirror-M8.
If your appetite has been whet, The Logic, The Ironic, and The Absurd, on at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, features over 100 of Gilad's recent works including this truncated, mirrored sofa, and archway made from doors.
