SOFT WORK by Sterling Ruby

Published by Koenig Books (2014)
160 Pages, 39 x 30 cm, Paperback

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 generously illustrated with dozens of full-page photographs from the last four exhibition venues as well as many images from Ruby’s studio, providing a valuable insight into the artist’s process and methods.
