ARCHETYPES


Stanley Ruiz
Archetypes
September 3, 2009, 4-7pm
20Square

SLab proudly presents Archetypes, a collection of design pieces by Stanley Ruiz, an industrial designer and media artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Ruiz recreates modern everyday objects—a clock, a bowl, a set of crayons—from raw organic materials fused with machine wrought processes and elements. He celebrates both the hand-crafted uniqueness of art and design together with the homologous industrial and mechanical sterility.

Early during his career, Ruiz practiced industrial design for Jonathan Adler and has taken part in a number of design and art shows in New York, Frankfurt, Paris, Estonia, Helsinki and Hong Kong. In his show at 20Square, Ruiz attempts to reinterpret familiar objects, and explore the meaning and application of these objects within our contemporary spheres. He returns to what is basic, using folk culture symbols as visual guides, organic elements (twigs and bark) as core materials and hand assembly and evolves the process to produce modern forms with new and relevant functions. His work is a study, almost a historical approach to design, as he explores, experiments and fuses craft with industry.Archetypes by Stanley Ruiz opens at 6 pm on September 1, 2009 and runs until the 19th of September 2009 at 20 Square, SLab.

Archetypes will be shown alongside Dwelling by Frankie Callaghan at Silverlens Gallery and Tears, Cuts & Ruptures, a group collage show curated by Gary-Ross Pastrana.
