  • Catalogue Essay

    "I definitely feel that ‘beauty’ is a contemporary question… It’s interesting to see how beauty is represented and how different takes on beauty can be so dichotomous and different. I like to think about art as being similar to poetry: it can’t be proven. It just exists and there’s an aura about it that people get or don’t get. Beauty has to do a lot with that." Sterling Ruby quoted in: H.M. Post, "Interview", Utopia Parkway, December 10, 2009
