Ruby Swinney

(b 1992South Africa. )

Ruby Swinney is a painter who works primarily with oil on silk and oil on tracing paper. She uses vibrant monochromatic colour to find form, employing painting as a medium not only for image-making but also for world-making. The figures within Swinney’s surreal and immersive recreations of natural environments suggest the precariousness of human existence.
