Matthew Ronay’s sculptures are based on the possibility or implausibility of future revolution in America. Focusing on scenarios of American homogenization and the manipulation of genetic science to create an ideal population, Ronay allows each piece to investigate what new value would arise from such a fundamental social shift. These narrative metaphors are intended to act as a visual puzzle and are often quite indiscernible as a result. The artist was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and is an MFA graduate from the Yale University School of Art. Last year, Ronay exhibited “Oh My God What Are We Gonna Do” with Vacio 9 in Madrid, Spain, and “Going Down, Down, Down” at Parasol Unit in London. The artist is currently represented with the Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York City and has been involved in several notable group exhibitions, including “Make It Now: New Sculpture in New York” at the Sculpture Center in Long Island City and “Uncertain States of America: American Art in the 3rd Millennium” at the Astrup Fearnly Museum of Modern Art in Oslo, Norway.
