Spatial and Social Politics

@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Ric Warren shares on the geometric abstraction and the images that influence his aesthetic and current studio work. In a shift from architectural references, his studio work is currently experimenting with the motifs of casual sportswear as social and territorial signifier.

With a central focus on spatial and social politics, Ric Warren’s artworks are predominantly sculptural and sculptural installation. His work considers how our manmade surroundings have symbolic meaning beyond their basic functions and is influenced by the materials, forms and experiences of his urban surroundings, distilled through minimalist artistic sensibilities.
