RA Waterman writes:
Every face speaks a multitude.
In a portrait, each line, each colour, each shape uncovers one moment of flickering energy, encompasses an ambiguity, fixes paint to open a question. A portrait seeks the question at its most intense, when it can no longer be avoided.
I am setting out to find the questions.

Duos

To order prints or purchase originals, please contact admin@ruthwaterman.com.

Two bodies in space – are they completely autonomous, or do they relate to one another? Are we able to see one without being affected by the other?
Alternatively are we able to see both at the same time?
And when they are connected, how does the connection itself influence our perception of each one?
Since this series was painted during the time of coronavirus, I can’t help thinking that these paintings reflect this year of separation and isolation together with an unexpected solidarity between strangers and communities.

Tree-bark

To order prints or purchase originals, please contact admin@ruthwaterman.com.

Shorn of their leaves and baring their trunks to wintry light, trees can be just as eye-catching in January as when they are dressed in their summer finery. I was particularly drawn to their barks – the detail! the variety! – photographing as many as I could find. This inspired a series of paintings based on the intricate surface of each tree trunk. Immersing myself in small patches of bark led to their shapes and colours and energies evolving, distilling, and – eventually – branching out into abstraction.
