The work of artist and 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 background in textiles and guild membership of RIBA has informed her progression to an MA in Fine Art at Canterbury Christ Church University.
She works from her studio in Boughton under Blean in Kent and The Print Block, Whitstable. She has exhibited extensively, both in the UK and abroad, most recently at Bankside Gallery, London, The Mall Galleries, The Beaney Canterbury and as part of East Kent Artists’ Open Houses.
