Collection Statement
The Abstract Body series depicts two oppositional modes of seeing the body: our familiarity with it as one whole form in mirrors and photographs and a foreign entity as abstract lines and contours when we look down at our physical form in front of us.
Artist Information
Bio
Ruth is a multi-disciplinary artist interested in visually documenting the effect of our environments upon the body, be that natural, urban, digital and our own inner neural and emotional environments - as visible in her abstract works. She also explores the experiences we have of seeing, having and being inside a body in her figurative works.

In her geometric circle-filled collection, made with fabrics and metallic faux leathers, she reiterates the power of nature upon our bodies and our own biomorphic fields. These works explore the scientific research of grounding and draw upon the healing power of the Sun, whose electrons have been found to charge, heal and nourish our bodies' cells when we walk barefoot on the ground.

Drawing on her research in to how the body stores and releases emotions, neuroplasticity, spirituality and the quantum model of reality, she delves in to the relationship between mind and body, comprehending it as fundamental to our understanding of who we are - and who we might become both individually and collectively.

Ruth studied Art at Central Saint Martins and English & Cultural Studies at Exeter University. She has exhibited extensively in the UK, through both solo and group shows and taken part in UK-based art fairs, art festivals and artist residencies. In 2020 she had her work projected on to Antony Gormley's Angel of The North as part of Ian Berry's project, Clap for the NHS. In November 2018, she was invited to give a TEDx talk, 'How to Rebel Against Body Image Idealism.' Ruth grew up in Hertfordshire, UK before moving to London for 15 years, where she started her artist practice professionally, in 2017.

She lives in Margate, Kent and works from her studio at home.
Artist Statement
"My work centres around the questions, 'who can we become?' And 'what could our futures look like?' Current conversations and discourses are emanating an awareness that our current systems - be they educational, environmental, medical, economical or political - and beliefs about the importance of such things as image, status, wealth or acquisition of things - are no longer working for us. After taking a neuroplasticity course during the first UK lockdown and reading a lot of studies about how the body stores past experiences and emotions - acquired in part, through these systems and beliefs. Therefore, perhaps the body is the first place we must look to, if we want to release old programs, beliefs and emotions that no longer serve us, before we can update ourselves and our societies with happier and healthier, new ones."
