EclipseSterling Ruby uses a wide range of aesthetic strategies in his practice, from saturated, glossy, poured polyurethane sculptures, to drawings, collages, richly glazed ceramics, graffiti inspired spray paint paintings, and video. In opposition to the minimalist artistic tradition and influenced by the ubiquity of urban graffiti, the artist’s works often appear scratched, defaced, camouflaged, dirty or splattered.
ScalesThe artist has cited a diverse range of sources and influences including aberrant psychologies (particularly schizophrenia and paranoia). Sterling Ruby was born in Bitburg, Germany, in 1972. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Running concurrently in the two gallery spaces, ECLPSE (6 rue St-Georges) features the artist’s collages, while a series of recent sculptures are presented in SCALES (107 rue St Georges).
