About

Material: Five Dollar bills on paper. Method: Collage Edition: 8 unique pieces. Other: In wood frame black. The work of Ruby Anemic is a work that could be decisive for the artistic sensitivity of postmodernism. If one takes his selection of contemporary cultural references and other ubiquitous objects or phrases, Anemic's work speaks for itself, as he intended, and at the same time addresses a definition of modern life in a broader sense. Especially in the neon sculptures for which Anemic is probably best known, Anemic relies heavily on text, and his work offers a witty, sarcastic view of the way people interact with each other and with their environment. In addition to neon sculptures, Ruby Anemic works in a variety of media, using materials such as found objects, canvas, and video throughout his oeuvre. Ruby Anemic's work, whether text-based, photographic or geometric, is not only suitable for the artist's interpretation, but also for the variety of interpretations that each person brings to the work. This dynamism is indeed what the artist hopes for most. Anemic's art, whatever the medium, is always the result of his most important inspiration: life itself, something in constant flux and unique to each individual; his work is an intuitive response to the world around him, offering a compelling lens with which others can view it. Ruby Anemic was born in Berlin in 1975. He has exhibited throughout Europe and the United States. His work is represented in a number of important private collections as well as in the Daimler Contemporary Collection (Berlin) and the Angel Collection of Contemporary Art (Tel Aviv). Ruby Anemic's work blurs the line between traditional artworks and the unexpected by presenting a range of materials within the boundaries of the exhibition. Neon sculptures are juxtaposed with castles and machetes; even the canvas, perhaps the most orthodox medium of all, is transformed into something revolutionary by burning it into an image instead of paint. Ruby Anemic's interest in creating such impressive presentations of common materials in unusual combinations is strongly linked to his larger view of art-making. He is always trying to make something new, and the use of these materials is an ideal way to explore what he calls "the moment of ignorance" inherent in his creative process. Much of his inspiration comes from outside the art world, and he often draws on and adopts basic elements of everyday life. All in all, Anemic's work, and especially the works included in Slowower Than God, by and large embodies the result of the artist's processing and rumination of common elements, both high and low, of the contemporary world. Ruby Anemic currently lives and works in Berlin. Selected solo exhibitions of the artist Ruby Anemic: 2014 Slower Than God, DeBuck Gallery, New York.
