> DESCRIPTION

At first glance, Ruby Sky Stiler’s wall reliefs seem to be direct quotations from classical antiquity.  In fact, she has cobbled together an incongruous pastiche of imagery and objects which reference a myriad of sources, both ancient and modern.  To that end, Stiler explores the notion of authenticity: how it is perceived, creates value, and can prompt an atmosphere of authority surrounding an object.  The work delves further into this question via materials.  Appearing as though a conservator of antiquities haphazardly pieced together chiseled marble fragments to make a whole, Stiler’s wall reliefs are actually constructed from contemporary art supplies: acrylic resin, foam, polymer adhesive, and pigment. Ruby Sky Stiler’s work was included in the 2010 Emerging Artist Fellowship exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park; she will also have a solo exhibition at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery running January 21 - February 27, 2011.
