This night features artist Matthew Ronay! Ronay will discuss the surrealist, mythology, and psychedelic inspirations behind the large-scale sculptures. Melding vocabularies of modernist abstraction and ritualistic objects, Ronay’s sculptures and enigmatic installations express the primacy of the handmade object. Suggesting the transcendent qualities of our bodies and the world we inhabit, Ronay’s meticulously crafted works embody modes of visual production that remind us that objects are not merely representations of a material culture of mass production, but rather are sites of projection: acting as locations which embody and reflect our inception and corporeal struggle.
