Rosa Ruey at Pelavin Gallery
R O S A R U E Y : B I G M A C H I N E
Opening Reception Thursday 24 February from 6 to 8 in the evening Exhibition continues through Saturday 2 April, 2011
Pelavin Gallery presents a solo exhibition of recent work by Chinese-American artist, Rosa Ruey. The show is comprised of saturated mixed media collages in a variety of sizes. This will be Ruey’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, and in New York City.
In this new body of work Ruey discusses humanity’s desire to control the uncontrollable by using the implications of large machines seeking physical truth such as the Large Hadron Collider. Fear, doubt and anxiety are just some of the emotions that we collectively experience in navigating hierarchical systems. This work proposes transforming that overwhelming energy into hopeful and playful systems while capturing the sublime magic that surrounds imagination.
