About

“An effect of texture and translucency being something between an old Italian fresco, an English landscape painting and a Japanese woodblock print”

Artist’s statement

Ruth AnderWater, light and vapour are the three elements that inspire my work.

My technique is perfectly suited to expressing these inspirations-delicate, translucent drifts of colour on fine tissue paper and traditional hand-made Japanese paper. Painted prints or printed paintings- the results are multi-layered impressions.

The prints are made by rolling ink onto a piece of glass or plastic, then taking an impression by hand. In this way layers of colour and texture are built up.

Some layers are so delicate they appear breathed onto the paper, the finished effect of texture and translucency being something between an old Italian fresco, an English landscape painting and a Japanese woodblock print.
