In Rusty's new series Cube Network and Cherry Blossoms, he explores drawing as a medium as he investigates memory as a means to create as he explains on his newest series:

"My Rip Van Winkle pieces are based on images I captured on a day when I emerged from my studio to find that the winds from the south had brought up a ton of dust from Mexico.  The skies were brown, everything had a golden glow, and although it was the middle of the day, the sun wasn’t able to break through even as I looked straight at it.  Everything seemed so transformed that I felt like I had come out into a different time."

Mathmatically and musically gifted, Rusty Scruby's process involves calculation and preciison:

"For the past 10 years, my work has focused increasingly on structure and the idea of an interaction between structure and image.  The combination of hand-crafted and analytical aspects in my work helps to create a tension. The resulting emotional expression stems from this interaction of limited parameters, similar to numbers in music and knit and purl in knitting."  - Rusty Scruby
