ABOUT RUTH VICKERS
Ruth has an Honours Diploma in Art and Creativity. Working as a professional artist since 2004, her work is exhibited in galleries throughout the North Island.
Artists statement: "My technique has evolved over the years. I love the excitement of colour and 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 making and negative shapes, interest is added to my work."
Ruth has had success in many solo and group shows plus being selected for several art awards. The most notable being the 'Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Awards' where Ruth has being a finalist four times: 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2014. A remarkable result.
Ruth's works have being selected three times for publication in the Artfind diary and calendar.
