    Biography

    Ruth Geldard 'Geldard's work revisits the language of sculpture whilst incorporating many of the processes and materials that are the subject of much contemporary work. It explores how gender might affect perception of and interaction with materials. Investigation into the character and specificity of material relies on interventions to natural and manmade objects. Each intervention complies with a particular verb to act as a constraint. The collection, selection and manipulation of materials is designed to elicit a conscious response. The work is created from this process and subsequent responses thereby making the physical subject the realisation of this strategy. Observation of audience interaction with the artworks is then carried forward and forms the basis of future research.' Duncan Brannan Visual Art's Officer for Kent 2012
