Ruth Oinn

Ruth trained as a printmaker at The Cambridge Curwen Print Study Centre, qualifying in May 2011. Her work reflects the ambiguity of art, the scope for interpretation of both experience and the natural world and her interest in the way the past and present inter-relate.  
Ruth is interested in the correlation between the layering process that is intrinsic to printmaking and how language and music can portray many layers of meaning.  In recent years her work has focussed on extracts from Shakespeare plays and the operas of Benjamin Britten.

Ruth says "My work is based on ideas and sits between abstract and realism. Although a lot of thought goes into my designs I am quite content for the viewer to see in them some entirely different meaning. It is important to me that the works I create are interesting and thought provoking and I hope they are also beautiful.  As I often employ several different techniques in one print my work is generally unique. I concentrate on relief, dry point and collage, using my Rollaco Boxer press in my studio in Saffron Walden. My current work is a series of prints in  response to poetry about birds."
