Rona Pondick interview
By Nneka Anozie
Rona Pondick observes, learns, experiments, and implements in cycles. As a child who took on drawing and painting by reflex to becoming an internationally acclaimed sculptor, known for her hybridized, metaphorical, and shifting approaches to the human body. Pondick challenges herself to make her mark on classic world sculpture through contemporary aesthetics and forward-facing techniques. The consistent essence behind her work is to “become a mirror of what it’s like to be alive.” With ODDA, Rona shares her interpretation of time, reflects on varied aspects of human nature, and explains her view on our world being an ongoign evolution with familiar twists.
