Locust Projects is a not for profit exhibition space located in Miami Design District that wants people to see the new and contemporary art and the new artists that are around. Also they intend to let artists explore new worlds and make experiences and exhibit their experimental art at their space.
The artist that is going to be featured on the art gallery is Ruby Sky Stiler. She is a Brooklyn-based sculptor that is going to have her Sun Breaker exhibition exposed from tomorrow till 28th of April.
This sculptor makes juxtapositions with his designs that are functional or simply decorative. Miami will appreciate her art that mention the native yet with a modern look architecture. This exhibition is one interpretation of the artist´s ongoing investigation of the female figure because he explores it in its installations.
Stiler made a modular installation that is at Locust Projects and it uses a technique used by modernist architects such as Le Corbusier or by Shulman + Associates at SOHO Beach House. Throughout the space of the exhibition the artist´s MDF screens will be suspended serving as a perforated veil that when illuminated, will reveal her cast plaster wall reliefs.
Ruby uses utilitarian materials that would supposedly result in normal sized sculptures but in this case the artist comes out with grandness sculptures. One good example of this is the artist´s work “Seated Woman” that can be interpreted has a twentieth century abstraction.
In the words of Nicelle Beachene Gallery: “the artist employs both conventional and everyday materials to create a body of work that mines a productive tension between high and low, the monumental and the prop-like, as well as the geometric and the organic.”
The themes of Sun Breaker ehibition make a lot of sense for Miami´s vibe because the type of architecture is similar to the most recognized architectural themes in the city.
As a conclusion note Stiler’s installation will be accompanied by a short animation that makes the connection between the brise-soleil effect, patterns from the plaster reliefs, and the female figure.
