On view through tomorrow in Hong Kong at the local Gagosian┬áin Central is Sterling Ruby’s show VIVIDS, his first with the gallery. The new series of works created with spray paint with a vibrant red and pink palette was inspired by the beautiful sunrises and sunsets he sees in Los Angeles. He further explains: “I live in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and my studio is in downtown Los Angeles. My daily routine of driving back and forth is always a contemplative time. On these drives I often witness extremely vivid and colorful sunrises and sunsets, yielding horizon lines that transform the urban sprawl into a meditative celestial plane.”
