Kris Ruhs Hanging Garden

11th april 2015 - 26th april 2015

On April 11th Galleria Carla Sozzani presents Hanging Garden, the new environmental installation by Kris Ruhs. Hanging Garden  is a collection of porcelain blooms and hand forged brass vines that captures the visual cacophony of a spring garden.

One of the hallmarks of this artist’s work has been his insistence that we see the presence of his materials. Fire and earth, water and iron, air and light are all apparent. But here, the delicate nature of the subject, a riot of flowers and vines, creates a subtle balance in visual delicacy between the elemental presence of his materials and the apparent fragility of these porcelain shapes and tangle of vines that express the ephemeral magnificence of nature.
On an environmental note, an area of concern for Ruhs, the beauty of the whole installation references the planet itself. Primal, elemental, and ephemeral. As Ruhs has always said, “Nothing can beat nature”.
