Xavier Hufkens is pleased to present a two-venue exhibition of new paintings and collages by Los Angeles-based artist Sterling Ruby.0Ruby?s DRFTRS and WIDW series are two ever-evolving bodies of work that bear witness to the artist?s intense relationship with materials and his interest in issues such as sociocultural evolution, popular culture, and violence. 0The WIDW paintings (an acronym for ?window?), are executed in acrylic, oil paint, and collaged fragments of cardboard and textile on canvas. In their composite nature, they closely relate to the DRFTRS works on paper. But the materials used in this series reflect yet another form of archaeology: the excavation of the artist?s studio.00Exhibition: Xavier Hufkens Gallery, Brussels, Belgium (07.09.-20.10.2018).
Die barocken Prunkräume des Winterpalais bilden vom 8. Juli bis 16. Oktober 2016 die Kulisse für die erste grosse Werkschau des US-Amerikaners Sterling Ruby (* 1972) in Europa. Ruby, der durch seine "Spray Paintings" bekannt wurde, zählt heute nicht nur in Los Angeles, sondern international zu den faszinierendsten und zugleich umstrittensten Künstlern seiner Generation. 0In Wien zeigt er Arbeiten aus den letzten zehn Jahren, darunter Keramiken, Skulpturen aus Bronze, Stahl und Urethan. Ausserdem sind seine Soft Sculptures, Mobiles und eine neue Serie von Wandteppichen zu sehen. Im Fokus steht die Auseinandersetzung mit militärischem Imperialismus und Kriegsrhetorik als deutlicher Verweis auf den Bauherrn des Winterpalais, Prinz Eugen von Savoyen. Exhibition: Belvedere Museum Wien, Austria (08.07.-16.10.2016).
This book presents twenty years of Sterling Ruby's iconic, multidisciplinary works. From his sublime abstract paintings to his soft sculpture "vampires" comprising American flags, Sterling Ruby is "one of the most interesting artists to emerge in this century," according to The New York Times. Accompanying Ruby's first US museum survey, this book takes a thematic approach to the artist's work, focusing on his critical invocation of imagery related to American identity. Beginning with his earliest collages, this book demonstrates his distinctive approach to psychological, cultural, and topical concerns. It includes his recent mobiles and polyurethanes, demonstrating his continuous engagement with themes such as prison reform, labor conditions, and vernacular cultures. Readers can compare smaller works on canvas and in clay to monumental sculptures made from submarine parts or giant skyscrapers rendered in toxically bright colors.
