Ruby  Lord
  • Work
  • Biography
Working across a range of media I attempt to manipulate reality, making the everyday world around us appear strange. By focusing attention onto the often overlooked, I reveal the oddity of how we live, sometimes simply exhibiting the weirdness that already belongs. The peculiar uncertainty of what one is viewing is enhanced by how I combine digital printed media and oil paint, producing scenarios that are part reality and part non-sensical. I work predominantly on a large scale, allowing the viewer to encounter the work physically and imagine themselves within the environment created.
