Summary:
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. Executed on paper, the DRFTRS (an acronym of?drifter?) are hybrid collages in which cut-and-pasted images occupy expressionistic landscapes. These nomadic elements, drifting through painterly space, are extracted from a vast image bank compiled by the artist. They reveal a myriad of current preoccupations including protest posters, horror movies, arts and crafts, album covers, orchids and poppies, snakeskins, stalagmites and stalactites, skulls and bones, priso00Exhibition: Xavier Hufkens Gallery, Brussels, Belgium (07.09.-20.10.2018).
