Ralph Pugay creates humorous visual propositions that are rooted in the investigation of anxiety, confusion, and alienation that exist in an era of rapid globalization and information consumption. Through the convergence of ideas inspired by philosophical inquiries, popular media avenues, and word-play, Pugay portrays an allegorical world that is in a constant state of flux— anxiously navigating the line between substance and futility. With a tinge of humor, his work thematically covers a range of everyday existential concerns, embodying questions about morality, the nature of truth, meaning, etc. Pugay’s work is a celebration of humanity in its attempt to master the unpredictability of natural forces.
