Ruth Powell

Ruth Powell

Born: 1985

Hometown: Bradford

Based in: Bath

As a contemporary artist, designer and maker I thrive when I am working on multiple projects and utilising a number of different processes including painting, digital tools and fibre. I create abstract work that is bold and dynamic and often has a strong architectural, geometric or typographic influence.

Having lived in a number of places throughout the UK I settled in Bath, where I attended Bath Spa University as a mature student to pursue my passion and develop as an artist. This is now where I work from a studio I share with my husband.

The hope for my work is that it inspires new connections, perspectives and wonder.

More About Ruth Powell

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Architecture, science, language, the pure process of making, nature, space, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, found objects, fragments, colour, shadows...

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

My process often starts with exploration, either through a walk or research, where I create and collect source material. I will then delve into my source material, usually a photo, a single colour or a sketch, and interrogate it. My process is sometimes intuitive and at others times has clearly predefined boundaries. When I am satisfied with a composition I will work it into a final piece - either a painting, digital or textile work.
