“Art slows us down because we have to stop and spend time with it, not glancing or skimming… not looking for diversion.”

From ‘Land’ by J. Winterson, A. Gormley and C. Richardson.

Ruth McCabe: One of the Reputable Contemporary Artists in Norfolk

As contemporary art is the work of artists from the 21st century, it mirrors contemporary culture and society. It is a rich resource for teachers, students, and audiences through which to consider the latest ideas and rethink the familiar. As one of the recognised contemporary artists in Norfolk, Ruth McCabe combines the methods, materials, subjects, and concepts that challenge traditional boundaries. As contemporary art is diverse and eclectic, it is rated via uniform organising ideology, principle, or -ism. The art of Ruth McCabe has a dramatic and strong form as she draws inspiration from external and internal landscapes.
