Salon 94 Presents First Exhibition by Ruby Neri
Salon 94 is proud to announce its first exhibition by artist Ruby Neri with vibrant new sculptures and pastel studies on paper on view October 30 through December 21, 2019. Neri’s ambitious ceramics pulsate with forceful femininity. Adorning oversized vessels with garnet red lips and bright lemon-yellow hair, the women in the exhibition blur the boundaries between the glamorous and the frantic. Exemplifying an Edenic innocence, their nakedness corresponds to more of a fundamental vitality than a sexual display.
The works in the exhibition address ambivalence, confusion and delirium: stereotypical representations of the feminine that Neri refines through empowerment. The vivid surfaces of these volumetric works record the raw energy of Neri’s labor and the passion of her vision, while also retaining the hardness and fragility of the high-heat firing process that secures its form and permanently adheres its colorful glaze.
Join Salon 94 for an opening reception on October 30, 2019 from 6-8pm.
