    “I don’t know if I ever think that things are beautiful. But I do think that things hold something that I’m very attracted to. I like to think about all of my work as a type of collage. A collage represents… illicit merger. Things not belonging together, absolutely making sense together. That’s the way I perceive everything that I do. That to me is actually kind of beautiful and desirable. This notion of things that are on the periphery and would never have anything to do with one another, now kind of joining one another and creating something else. That actually seems very successful and beautiful to me.”
    (Ruby quoted in H.M. Post, “’I LIKE THE FACT THAT ART CAN’T BE PROVEN (Sterling Ruby on beauty – The Utopia Parkway Files, part 4),” Utopia Parkway, December 10, 2009)
