Sterling Ruby is back at Foxy Production and once again he's all over the place in both the solo show as a whole and in the individual works that each refuse to be limited to a single medium themselves. Collage seems to dominate new work in the visual arts everywhere lately, but Ruby's entire oeuvre can be understood as a single great collage of inventions, and each one of them in turn collages his bold, complex understanding of his world in layers which reveal little but promise much.

I just wish I could take it all home where I might see just how far I could get with it.

Ask Michael or John about the videos.
