Melding vocabularies of modernist abstraction and ritualistic objects, Matthew Ronay's sculptures and enigmatic installations express the primacy of the handmade object.

Ronay’s presentation will chart the realization that nature is fundamental to his work, describing how the artist envisions his inspirations as a zig-zagging thread of artists and scientists from the 18th century to the present whose works reflect natural phenomena consciously or unconsciously. Ronay also proposes the possibility that inherited memories of the genesis and evolution of life recapitulate themselves in abstract works of sculpture and painting.
