“When I’m asked about the clothes, I…I don’t know. I pick up from where I left off, and then I get feelings, and then it comes from here.” When Ralph Rucci said that to me, he pointed to his solar plexus, the center of his torso. He does not create from his head, he does not create from his heart, he really doesn’t even create from his soul. His body of work has expresses itself through him. Mr. Rucci has repeatedly stated that he feels no sense of ownership or possession over the unique and moving works that populate his collections.
