Comprised of eight new sculptures, fashioned in polychromed basswood, they are meticulously hand carved and dyed with a phosphorescent palette. Manifesting a decades-long interest in phenomenology, the works are derived from Ronay’s interactions with his subconscious, which reflect myriad impressions, ranging from the legacy of abstract art and ritualistic habits to the relationship between the body and other organic forms.
The works in this exhibition are engaged with the confrontation and interaction between different entities. The sculptures embody forms in diametric opposition: meetings, clashes, and forgatherings. They are exchanges, they are groups, they are couples; even when solitary, beneath their surfaces are two, three, or multiple essences.
— Matthew Ronay
