Ruth Howes

Tending to work with an absolute economy of materials (often just paper and blade) her work finely balances ‘technical’ and ‘invention’; acute and whimsical in one.

Ruth studied Sculpture on the Fine Art course at Norwich School of Art graduating in 2000. Post studies and navigating working more commercially in London, Ruth was commissioned for illustrations and painting, before arriving at papercutting.

Emerging more recently are 3 dimensional works; paper made sculpture and multilayered framed pieces. Repetition and rhythm, balance and tension in natural and man made spaces play out in these new abstracted worlds. A new collaboration with Florence Logan making sculptural mobiles, further explores ‘man in the land’ and the relationship between art and craftsmanship for the home environment.
