Based in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire, Ruth creates Mosaics influenced by her local surroundings and her trips abroad.
‘In recent years I have followed Ruth Wilkinson’s career with growing interest and admiration. The quality and professionalism of her output has been impressive. The dedication she brings to the work is furthered by her frequent visits to India in her discoveries of the Art of its many temples. Extensive notes and detailed observations of the architectural designs and patterns are then assembled into amalgams of Indian decorations, colours and of its people.
The vibrant colours and textures resonate through her use of the ceramic medium. Her excitement with the Indian culture increases as the delicacy of her works grows. In her most recent pieces Ruth seems to have developed a painter’s sensibility which is why on a personal level, I find them both stimulating and satisfying’.
