Ruth Solomons' work derives from working with linear forms and flat shapes. Her sources are silhouette-like in character and lend themselves to being reproduced in paint and collage cut outs. Early work used wire models to create abstract shapes which were transposed to canvas, this developed to using string, cardboard cut outs and monoprints of scribbles and brushmarks onto acetate. From this she has recently begun to draw freehand shapes that emphasis the kicks and curls found in the brushmark monoprints. Her large canvases evoke reflections and water, and her collages build up shapes and lines against a puzzle like backdrop of repeated shapes.
