Ronald de Ceuster exhibits in many places and often at special locations. You could say that Ronald de Ceuster ‘traverses’ the world, as we used to do as a child: with a pen and tracing paper we drew the contours of an image, creating a simplified version of the original.  The Ceuster does this in large. He accentuates spatial structures and constructions with porous foam, such as floors, walls and ceilings. He emphasizes the things we usually do not pay too much attention to, and lets us experience space in a different way. It is literal drawing, but also giving meaning to something, to the inconspicuous. The space determines the shape and at the same time also supports the three-dimensional drawing. In the work of De Ceuster, however, the drawing is increasingly trying to pry itself loose from the wearer. It seems like it wants to lead a life of its own. (Floor Wildschut, curator & art historian). 

 At Cube Gallery Ronald de Ceuster shows wall objects of painted polyurethane. The fragility of the material is in line with his desire to create images that appear to be signs of decay and fragility and that at the same time give a feeling of playfulness, lightness and freedom.
