Sterling Ruby, a multidisciplinary artist who makes urethane and bronze sculptures, hallucinatory colour-field canvases, and handmade ceramics, addresses the conflict between individual desire and social structure, and the influence of institutional architecture, both literal and figurative, on human behaviour and psychology. This book (conceived and designed by the artist) is illustrated with dozens of full-page photographs of exhibitions as well as Ruby's studio, providing a valuable insight into the artist's process and methods.
Published retrospectively after the exhibition SOFT WORK(2012/13) at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm; FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims; Museo MACRo, Rome; and Centre D'Art Contemporain, Geneva.
