Plymouth College of Art
BA (Hons) Fine Art
I have been creating since I was 17, and have experience with a wide range of materials. Art, for me, is a cathartic process in which I explore how I see the world. Nostalgia is an important theme for me, as well as memories and their function in the present. The fundamental concept at the heart of Ruth Brown’s art practice is based upon the preservation of memories, both individually and collectively. The process of making is an important and cathartic experience, often a catalyst for her use of material processes and installation. The artist works within a wide range of media, such as textiles, photographs and performances to share her voice through the use of everyday objects, which are of personal significance. Her work delves into her own past, often focusing on loss as a narrative. The use of art as therapy is a core part of Brown’s work.
