COLLAGE

"Looking is an act of renewal.' ...' Art slows us down because we have to stop and spend time with it.... not glancing or skimming....not looking for diversion".

 

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

 

Since early 2021 Ruth has explored the use of collage in her work. Playing with a combination of hand-painted, acid free tissue papers, and opaque off-cuts of her watercolours, the compositions are a natural evolution from the translucent, layered watercolour work. Evocative of the moods and textures of her favourite places these pieces demonstrate her strong abilities with composition and line.
