Ruth Watkinson

Ruth Watkinson graduated from Falmouth University in 2017 with a degree in Fine Art.

A lifelong preoccupation with light and landscape has led me to make representational paintings from photographs. The work is a rendering of contemporary moments, depicting not just sights but experiences. It seeks to renew our sense of wonder in the face of the everyday. Through the unpredictable quality of paint and its allusion to touch, image becomes emotional space. This space is yours to occupy.
I am fascinated by the way a single image can generate a wealth of disparate response. Ambiguity in the work leaves room for the individual's imagination to interact with the painting. Our lives are permeated by images and we respond to them as language. As Huw Evans describes, the language of art is about 'communicating emotional charge, the power of emotion which can then be experienced by another person'. This is what I desire to convey through my use of imagery and paint.
