Enquire about Ruth Piper

Based in Bristol, Ruth is primarily a painter working with water based mediums: manipulating both figurative and abstract elements.

Ruth’s current work is inspired by the concepts and notions of transition and transformation that link to a strong sense of place both physical and psychological, located in the shadowy mythological landscape between knowing and the unconscious, where dreams and reality merge.

The process of painting is experienced here as a fictional layering of the past and present that can look back at the viewer with a glimpse of something hidden, not yet known or experienced.

She likes the remote and wild atmosphere of certain literature and films and has a special fascination for the terrain of epic westerns, psychological thrillers, classic novels and detective fiction.
