Ruth Piper

Artist, Curator, Arts administrator, Project manager

My work evolves from the processing and arranging of collected information, including thougts and feelings related to recent world or emotional events, printed imagery, movies or literature. I sometimes take photographs of accumulations of objects and make drawings and watercolours over a period of some months. I understand that this assembled data is connected to my idea of external reality and if I am lucky resonates metaphorically with something hidden inside myself that is triggered by certain imagery or the handling of materials. Occasionally I am compelled and driven by a desire to make something in particular visible without quite knowing why.
