Rusty Scruby – Epsilon


Artwork Description


Dimensions: 25.5 x 19.5″
Year: 2013
Media: photographic reconstruction

Rusty Scruby’s photographic reconstruction work, Epsilon, plays with the tension between flatness and dimensionality by using a photograph for the basis of his work and manipulating it so as to give it both depth and a sculptural quality. Within the piece, Scruby takes traditional associations with the beach, such as flowing sand and sky, and interjects linear and structural elements so that viewers are encouraged to adapt their mental images to fit with Scruby’s conceptions. True to the intersectionality often seen in his wider body of work, Scruby explores the union of art and science in Epsilon.
