Ruben Burgess Jr. (b. 1992), is a New York City-based multidisciplinary artist, whose work is rooted in sculpture and line drawings. The integration of found objects and natural resources introduces a darker reflection of human life. The dialogue between mediums communicates his common themes of tension and reprieve. Each work holds a loose balance in shape, texture, and function, creating a visual harmony of delicacy, strength, softness, and darkness. His sculptures are held together through the safety of simple physics, and visualized through the push and pull of fine lines and their relation to gravity. He presents lightness with weight, and soft objects formed in hard materials. In Burgess’ fine line drawings and paintings, his adept background in the sartorial exposes a fragility to life, like the threads we wear in relation to our human form. From the industrial to the tensions of domestic life, Burgess utilizes various materials to capture an uneasiness that a line could snap at any moment, that all of the things we hold on to are inherently ephemeral.
