Art Talk by Matthew RonayClasses, Workshops & Lectures
When Two Are In One, a new sculptural installation by Matthew Ronay, comprises a series of brightly colored, abstract totems positioned atop a long, low plinth. Through a linear progression of organic forms, often anthropomorphic and reminiscent of biological structures, the installation alludes to reproductive and evolutionary processes. Ronay is known for sculptures and installations that feature shamanistic forms and vivid colors, harkening to psychedelia and surrealism, as well as folk and non-western art. His playful forms—each meticulously hand-carved out of wood—are imbued with humor and a continual interest in the unconscious. Matthew Ronay lives and works in New York. He was born in 1976 in Louisville, Kentucky. He received his MFA from Yale and his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. On view through .
