Industrious and reflective describe his latest creations and the artist himself, as Ron Ulicny makes his triumphant return to Houston with a new series of signature sculptures. The minimalist/surrealist works are both cerebral and amusing, as Ulicny uses carefully selected and masterfully manipulated material to portray the workings of his mind. His latest solo exhibition, Raison d’être, includes stunning wall-mounted and free-standing sculptures fabricated from galvanized steel ducting. Ulicny embodies the meaning of the French phrase, as he brings his relationship with his craft to the forefront of all that he does and shares it with the intrigued audience. Every piece represents one of an infinite number of reasons for living and being an artist. Ulicny is no stranger to taking risks with complete dedication and purpose.
