Sterling Ruby by Jessica Morgan, Franklin Sirmans, Kate Fowle

A comprehensive study of one of the most versatile artists and acute observers of our time, who fuses art and fashion American artist Sterling Ruby works in a large variety of media, including sculpture, ceramics, painting, and video art. Ruby is influenced by a wide range of sources, including marginalized societies, maximum-security prisons, modernist architecture, artefacts and antiquities, graffiti, waste and consumption, and urban gangs. Through these, he examines the psychological space where individual expression confronts social constraint.

Reviews

The first book to collect the multifaceted work of the LA-based artist... Reflects on the work of an iconic living artist and examines how the Raf Simons collaborator confronts contemporary society through ceramics, collages, videos and paintings. -Amuse-i-d.vice.com Authoritative and extensively illustrated. -Artnet On the Contemporary Artists Series The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about. -Artforum The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art. -Time Out A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists. -The Sunday Times Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment. -The Art Book
