There is a magical and pristine quality to glass, which Ramon Todo focuses on in his recent collection of work. He embeds unexpected objects including rocks, books and even pieces of the Berlin Wall with the material to give them a surreal quality that nevertheless remain understated. By doing so, Ramon Todo invites people to view and interact with them in different ways.

Visually, Ramon Todo's use of clean glass and older objects brings both materials in stark relief of each other. There is also a theme of fragility and stability visited in each work of art. Beautiful Decay writes that Ramon Todo "questions the very nature of the objects he is working with, and exploits the properties that we understand them by having. He asks us: what makes a rock a rock?"
