UWE SPS Scholarship

Ruth Ander is one of our UWE SPS scholars.

Ruth gets her inspiration from water, light and vapour.

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