Matthew Ronay’s sculptures have a sensual aura and transmit ideas of processes happening in nature; penetrating, gestating, twining, and evolving. The works appear to be soft, yet they are made of wood. With their vibrant colours, they cohabitate a world of peculiar abstraction: Dealing with sexuality, growth, death and decay, their organic forms oscillate between the primordial and futuristic. Ronay’s work has been exhibited at Blaffer Art Museum, Houston, TX (US); Pérez Art Museum, Miami, FL (US); Dallas Museum of Art, Houston, TX (US), amongst others. Selected public collections include the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York, NY (US); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY (US); Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX (US); Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (NO); ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus (DK), amongst others.
