The handcrafted and vibrantly colorful works of Brooklyn-based sculptor Matthew Ronay (born 1976) evoke biological processes and organic forms as much as they draw on spiritual and mythological narratives. Influences ranging from science fiction, chemistry, Surrealism and mycology emerge in his psychedelic reliefs and installations.
This book documents the artist's first major museum presentations in the United States, with an eponymous exhibition at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston, as well as a newly commissioned project, When Two Are in One, at the Pérez Art Museum, Miami. Collected here are Ronay's most significant sculptures and installations from the last four years alongside major new texts that elucidate the artist's singular vision.

This small monograph, devoted to the young Brooklyn-based artist, features delicate, disturbing drawings and uncomfortably comical sculptural works. Body parts abound, with emphasis on teeth and genitals. Ronay received his MFA from Yale University, and has had solo shows at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, and Marc Foxx, Los Angeles.
