Artist Statement

Ron Ziser is a visual artist who’s work primarily explores the economic realities of a globalised world and innovative modes production and distribution which have the potential to offer us a more progressive economic existence. These revolve around his concept of  ‘The Common Ideal’ which he developed in his recently published masters dissertation and the notion of ‘decentralisation’ which includes and exceeds the advent of blockchain technology. These multi-layered ideas are embedded within more approachable imagery and motifs but become more evident when considering his choice of materials and techniques and the particular modes of production he chooses to produce his work. Using various digital and physical mediums he creates objects which transcend the boundaries between art, architecture and design and the threshold between the digital and physical world, whilst maintaining an interest in eco-conscious practices, materials and concerns. 

Bio

Following his bachelors degree at Goldsmiths University Ziser spent a number of years in the architecture visualisation and property development sector, he also ran a pop-up gallery space in east London whilst developing his practice around various maker-spaces around the city. In conjunction with his art practice Ziser has curated and produced a number of exhibitions featuring his peers and is also working on a series of industrial design projects which he plans to develop and release in the coming years. He recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with a distinction and continues to work in London, UK.
