The Factory Set is richly illustrated to showcase the artist’s career portfolio, detailing his trademark wall-mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood and salvaged materials. An in-depth essay written by the artist is included, along with a number of texts by Frits van Dongen, Jannet de Goede, Hester Keijser and Braden King. From the Inside Flap RON VAN DER ENDE forges a captivating marriage between disparate art-making approaches to material reality. One, found-object assemblage, trades on the power of association and the evocative patinas of wear and use. The other, illusionism, depends on finely-tuned, seductive deceit. The Rotterdam, the Netherlands-based artist builds his wall-mounted works from salvaged wood, stripping the veneers and using them as a palette of textures and tones. He creates low reliefs (six inches deep) that are painterly and sculptural, reading as objects of far greater depth and mass. This is [...] ground-level craft, a gripping work of visual fiction composed with tender reverence, by hand. - - - Leah Ollman 'High craft in the low reliefs' Los Angeles Times July 2013 From the Back Cover RON VAN DER ENDE forges a captivating marriage between disparate art-making approaches to material reality.
