By cutting up and reassembling photographs and drawings, Rusty Scruby distorts once-clear images through a systematic process. Scruby’s reconstructions conform to grids and complex mathematical patterns, in effect producing optical rhythms that confer visual harmony on the images, despite the artist’s abstraction of his sources. Scruby’s process is rooted in a background in craft and engineering, and his interest in the transformations undergone through memory. “I'm always investigating stitches and how things hold on,” he says. “That's where a lot of my structure ideas come from.”
