For over 30 years Ron Gard has been designing and crafting a variety of props, sculptures, rooms and exteriors for movies and commercial ad campaigns for his company Ron Gard LTD. As a response to crafting and designing according to the specifications of others’ work and art, Ron has developed an artistic aesthetic all his own.

In “AMS WHAT I AMS” Gard has expertly manipulated Corten steel to achieve his unique work in which two intersect- ing lips of steel float over a silver sphere above a pedestal. “AMS WHAT I AMS” is the artist’s individuality put to steel with an endearing quality of self acceptance. For the viewers who ask what the sculpture represents, the answer is clear. It is what it is.
