Depicted here, Rubys YARD paintings test the formal limits of the medium, using rollers and brooms to spread a multicolored palette of acrylic paints over unprimed canvases, while the fabric, cardboard, and other materials are attached to the edges of each painting, like mysterious satellites at the borders of indeterminate topographies. Meanwhile, huge fragments of reclaimed American submarine combine with engine parts and steel pipes to convey the raw potential of sculpture.


Featuring more than 40 color plates, including detailed images that highlight the various aspects of each piece, this book presents stunning installation photographs of both of the artists recent Paris shows and an insightful new essay by critic Philippe Dagen. Colorful double-page spreads of the artists two studios depict the creative process for the aforementioned paintings and sculptures.
