Ruth McDonald: printmaker, painter & collage

Exhibitions by this artist

See more work by Ruth McDonald here

The work of artist printmaker Ruth McDonald reflects her interest in her local woodland landscape and the sea when illuminated by failing light and the moon to expose the traces left by past inhabitants.  Preferred sites are constantly revisited, re-worked and re-ordered with her explorations investigating beyond the evident as she seeks to reveal images as ciphers and signs of the unknown.

Ruth’s gesso panels and paintings have an immediacy derived from the physicality of layering, scratching and scraping while her prints capture the essence of place, combining layers of images and memories.

 

Ruth McDonald’s background in textiles and guild membership of RIBA has informed her progression to an MA in Fine Art.  Since graduating she has developed her practice and become a member of United Society of Artists.  Ruth works from her studio in Boughton under Blean and The Print Block, Whitstable.   She has exhibited extensively, both in the UK and abroad, most recently at Bankside Gallery, London, The Mall Galleries, Beaney Canterbury and as part of East Kent Open Houses.
