Local artist Ran Adler is described as an assemblage artist, utilizing natural materials and other elements of nature to create sculptural compositions. In his practice of assemblage, Adler is always looking to create shadows that will speak to the space. For this exhibition titled Shadow Play, a term borrowed from the Asian practice of storytelling with cut-out puppets behind a scrim, Adler transforms the gallery into a storytelling space with his naturally constructed sculptures and installations. The shadows the pieces provide through natural and artificial light take the story beyond the art itself and create visual inspiration for the imagination. They offer the viewer something unsuspecting and perhaps…playful.
