More information about this artwork

Sterling Ruby, a highly acclaimed contemporary artist, explores the expressive power of colors in his works on paper and collage. Known for his bold and dynamic aesthetic, Ruby's use of color is both intense and evocative. In his works on paper, Ruby employs a wide range of hues, often juxtaposing vibrant and saturated tones with more subdued or earthy colors. This juxtaposition creates a visual tension that enhances the emotional impact of his artworks. Whether he employs a vibrant color palette or a more restrained one, Ruby's use of color is deliberate and purposeful, conveying a sense of energy, depth, and emotion.

In Ruby's collage works, colors play a significant role in creating intricate and layered compositions. He combines a diverse array of materials, including fabric, found objects, and printed images, each with its own inherent color palette. Through the juxtaposition and manipulation of these materials, Ruby creates complex visual narratives. The use of colors becomes a way for him to construct and deconstruct meaning within his collages, provoking a visceral response from the viewer. Whether it is through harmonious or contrasting color combinations, Ruby's use of colors in his works on paper and collage serves as a powerful tool for expressing his artistic vision and engaging the audience on both a visual and emotional level.
