Sterling Ruby at Hauser & Wirth

May 9, 2014

Sterling Ruby’s first New York show with Hauser & Wirth showcases his ability to work adeptly across a broad range of mediums: sculpture, textiles, and painting. We see the diverse impacts of a childhood spent in the Amish country in Pennsylvania combined with a later keen interest in street culture, archaeology, and working with fabrics developed during his studies in Los Angeles. The influences of Mike Kelley (for whom he served as a teaching assistant), Paul McCarthy, and Peter Voulkos are evident throughout this compelling body of work.
