EXHIBITING: Original Art, Clothing, Candles and Gifts by Ruth Vickers
OPEN: Wednesdays – Saturdays, 10am – 3pm
LOCATION: 35 Devonport Rd, by Indelible Giftware
Be sure to visit the Edited Gallery, featuring works by Ruth Vickers. Ruth's paintings express the human condition; she likes her work to have a narrative aspect and to go beyond being merely decorative. Ruth's work has been selected three times for publication by Artfind (for their diary and calendar) and she has been a finalist for the Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Award in 2008 and 2009, 2012 and 2014, as well as being a finalist in the Katikati National Mural Competition 2008.
The Gallery also features the Ruth Anthea Clothing Range
Ruth's technique has evolved over the years; "I love the excitement of colour and the spontaneity of abstraction. However, for me, this is not enough to be able to communicate my stories, therefore I use elements of abstraction, with rich colour and dramatic layers of texture, thus creating a complex background. I then use more representational elements to create my narrative, building images with bold use of light and shadow to create form; with use of line, mark-making, and negative shapes, interest is added to my work."
The Edited Gallery will be open until 6 June 2020 so be sure to come and check it out before then.
