Isreali born, New York based artist Ron Gilad is fascinated with philosophizing about the common objects we live with. His latest body of work “Spaces” deals most directly with architecture. A series of coffee tables, for example, resemble line drawings of houses in three dimensions. Based on plans found online, each is made from a brass frame painted black. Some outline an entire house while others are only segments of spaces with openings marking the placement of doors. All are fitted with a pane of glass or supple leather upholstery that functions as the tabletop.
