  • Catalogue Essay

    Sterling Ruby is one of the most interesting artists to emerge in this century. That's only eight years, of course, but the claim may stick. He makes obstreperous, richly glazed ceramic vessels that suggest charred remains; totemic sculptures webbed with mucousy macramelike drips of resin; large dark collages dotted with constellations of tiny images of artifacts; and drawings, photographs and short videos. (Roberta Smith, Art Review, Sterling Ruby, New York Times, March 21 2008)
