Meet a Maker

Ruth Brown

Ruth graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in June 2016. Working predominantly in precious metals and resin, her practice explores illusion and perception.

Reflective surfaces, along with the forms created by natural repetition in the urban environment, provide Ruth with a basis for visual exploration. Her work investigates the changes which accompany the intangible movement of light and shadow against simple, linear planes.

Combining highly polished sheet metal with reflective resin surfaces, Ruth created infinite and distorted reflection within complex geometric forms. Imagery is essential to her practice, with hand-drawn and digital images on acetate superimposed on resin planes.
