Exhibitions – Synthesis

Kirkby Gallery presents this exciting solo exhibition of work by renowned North West artist Ruth Moilliet.

‘Synthesis’ showcases Ruth’s intricate sculptures inspired by the plant kingdom. Through detailed studies of particular species, she aims to draw the viewer’s attention to both the overall spectacle and individual beauty of a plant or flower. More recent works explore the relationships within nature and the co-existence that occurs to ensure a species continued survival. Ruth’s sculptures are predominantly made from metal and often incorporate colour and different finishes adding texture and contrasts in the work. The components and materials that make up the finished artworks and the materials used demonstrate the apparent fragility of an individual plant contrasted with its ability to survive through ongoing lifecycles.
