Ruth Breckell

"I am interested in boundaries, loss and the idea of residue. I layer the paintings and peel away masking until I am left with the final image. The grand themes are all there, death, birth, separation, faith, nostalgia and science.

The visual world is an ever changing source of material. Symbols are absorbed by us every minute and yet we seek more ways to block and soften the constant diet of information. The colour I use is slightly dirty and imperfect, the application is mostly flat with highly contrasting areas. " - Ruth Breckell
