Ramus by Matthew Ronay

Matthew Ronay a Brooklyn-based artist unveils his new series solo exhibition, entitled ‘Ramus’ a balance between a world of modern abstraction and surrealism.

Ronay works from drawings—deceptively simple sketches in a small notebook he keeps with him at all times. They are drawings of intertwined bodies, of limbs and protuberances, cuticles, peduncles, carbuncles, calcifications, intersections of hard and soft matter, barnacles, burls, tumors, phantom limbs and vestigial appendages. These are not drawings of sculptures, they are drawings that become sculptures, which is to say they are neither plans nor diagrams, but something more free-form, more intuitive, unburdened by regard for the structural particulars of the sculptures they will come to describe.

For his upcoming show at Perrotin, Matthew is drawing at a different scale, working on larger paper that allows for a different kind of physical interaction with the drawing. Freed from the confines of the spiral notebook, new gestures come from the shoulder or the arm rather than the hand. There is more of his body in each drawing and new variations in line weight, texture and detail emerge. Ronay moves back and forth from drawing to object, from clean room to dirty, from shoe to identical shoe.

“Ramus” is on Display at Perrotin Paris until May 26th.
