About

The main themes of Ruth Murray’s practice are the tension of change, the agitation of youth and the feelings of alienation and paranoia associated with misunderstood experiments/rituals. Ruth’s iconography is developed from everyday stories, places and faces, but also makes use of elements from older visual languages and across the boundaries between ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture.

Ruth hopes the viewer will question their perception of reality before her paintings. By infusing the familiar with eeriness, sometimes using domestic spaces or nostalgic triggers associated with an idealized, utopian childhood state, she offers glimpses of strange acts and private moments that expose personal stories and secret worlds.

For this exhibition Ruth is presenting works created between 2010 and 2017.
