This Saturday, clear the decks for the opening of João Ruas' largest exhibition to date, "Yore." In this latest body of work, he has allowed his world to grow more confused and abstracted, evoking emotional turmoil and otherworldly realms of the spirit. In addition to 20 paintings, 5 etchings, and several pieces painted on ostrich eggs, this remarkable show will feature a mural installation, a print, an exhibition catalog and his recently released book of sketches, Minion. You can immerse yourself in João's ethereal mythos at Thinkspace on November 5th.
I am obsessed with art, so whenever I see imagery that moves and inspires me, I need to write about it. In addition to the many profiles and interviews you can read here, I am co-author of Andrew Hem: Dreams Towards Reality, Dabs Myla: Midnight Fantasy, Mark Ryden: The Gay '90s, Edwin Ushiro: Gathering Whispers, Chris Berens: Mapping Infinity, Heroes & Villains and several other art monographs.
