The image of a bed carries many connotations: Sleep, sickness, dreams, sex, comfort, birth, death. In Rona Pondick’s sculpture, velvet pillows evoke the female figure and contrast with the crude cast bronze lump lying on them, which appears phallic or excremental. With this unsettling juxtaposition, Pondick confronts our attitudes toward the basest physical facts of our humanity.
