Ronna Nemitz, The Pull of Gravity (2011)
The Pull of Gravity explores ideas of suspension, tension, and isolation through an on going narrative. Amplified and exaggerated moments are suspended in prolonged tension and isolation, pinpointing moments of transition. Truncated limbs replace entire figures. With the impending movement halted, the ephemeral nature of experience is momentarily arrested and able to be examined.
Everyone experiences some form of these moments in their lives and it is my attempt to make something physical that represents the complex and contradictory emotions involved in life’s transitions. Personal meaning takes shape out of these moments. We are the sum of our life’s transitions.
