About Ruth Brown

Scottish jeweller Ruth Brown graduated from The Glasgow School of Art’s Silversmithing and Jewellery department in 2016. She now works from her studio in Glasgow - a city which inspires much of her practice. She believes that one’s environment is no small component of their identity, and Ruth’s sculptural, geometric work is inspired by the distorted and fragmented reflections within the architecture of her urban environment.

The changes which accompany the movement of light across the simple, linear planes of a city provide Ruth with a basis for visual exploration, and through investigations into distorted and fragmented reflection, shadow and space, Ruth explores illusion and perception. Alongside the modern environment, the traditional forms and concepts of a looking glass are explored within Ruth’s work in resin and recycled precious metals. Replaced by parallel surfaces of highly polished sheet metal, or fragmented depictions of the environment, the ‘glass’ of Ruth’s mirror forms is evocative of the fragmentary nature of observation and understanding.

Drawing and photography are essential to her practice, with hand drawn and digital images- superimposed onto two- dimensional resin and aluminium planes- echoing the allure of the intangible and fleeting images which reflect upon a modern city’s surfaces. The moment where tangibility ends, and the ephemeral starts. Ruth is continually experimenting with new processes, techniques and materials, in order to advance her practice, and develop new, innovative work.
