Nasher Sculpture Center

Description

Brooklyn-based artist Matthew Ronay is best known for his chromatic, handmade wood sculptures that at different turns suggest otherworldly landscapes with futuristic architectures and bodily processes like digestion and aging. For his exhibition in the Nasher's Lower Level Gallery, Ronay expands the scale of his work to create his largest and most ambitious sculpture to-date. Titled The Crack, the Swell, an Earth, an Ode, the nearly 24-foot-long sculpture offers a comprehensive introduction to Ronay's surreal worlds and the various creatures inhabiting them. Representing that tension between abstraction and representation, the various connected elements in The Crack achieve what Ronay describes as "the razor's edge of familiar and unfamiliar; you think you're seeing something, but you're not quite sure."
