about this item

This stunning book encompasses more than twenty works detailing Sterling Ruby’s simultaneous exhibitions at Gagosian Gallery’s two Paris locations in 2015.  Depicted here, Ruby’s YARD paintings test the formal limits of the medium, using rollers and brooms to spread a multicolored palette of acrylic paints over unprimed canvases, while fabric, cardboard, and other materials are attached to the edges of each painting, like mysterious satellites at the borders of indeterminate topographies. Meanwhile, huge fragments of reclaimed American submarine combine with engine parts and steel pipes to convey the raw potential of sculpture.   Featuring more than 40 color plates, including detail images that highlight the various aspects of each piece, this book presents stunning installation photo- graphs of both of the artist’s recent Paris shows and an insightful new essay by critic Philippe Dagen. Colorful double-page spreads of the artist’s two studios depict the creative process for the aforementioned paintings and sculptures.
