Ruth Piper-Visual Artist


    My current body of work is a meditation on the existential concept of human mortality and extinction, in particular the effect of this knowledge on our sense of place and belonging.
    The paintings are composite landscapes, that have a nocturnal appearance, built up or layered from elements, either invented or observed separately in different places, creating a gentle slightly romantic, melancholic atmosphere.
    I look for evidence of new growth in corners of the natural world that can be transformed into emblems of hope where dreams and reality merge.
