Anna Ruth’s work has long been defined by her personal mythology.
The environment of her paintings and installations combines a certain timelessness with a strong emphasis on nature, which is depicted here through the supposed perspective of first humans. As a mysterious territory of its own, dangerous to man by its opacity, it balances between figuration and abstraction. Large formats, light glaze painting, earthy colours, the artist transitions fluidly between painting and sound.
Anna Ruth is a recent graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague where she studied under Jiří Petrbok and Martin Gerboc in the Drawing Studio.
Would You Still Love Me If I Were a Worm?
Exhibition Would You Still Love Me If I Were a Worm? presents the works of four artists, Aleksandra Vajd, Anna Ruth, Tereza Štětinová and Anna-Marie Berdychová.
Each of the artists works in different mediums, such as photography, sculpture, object or painting. However, they share an interest in similar themes inspired by female mythological creatures or the contemporary position of women in art. We deliberately focused the opening on International Women’s Day as a celebration of female gentleness and strength. Exhibition Would You Still Love Me If I Were a Worm? is an effort to bring the unique and inspiring perspectives of each artist into a common thematic space.
