Ruth Claxton

Ruth Claxton creates sculpturally complex installations in which found china figurines, altered by the artist in mischievous ways, play with the formal language of the sculptural form. Ruth Claxton uses existing imagery in order to deconstruct the ideas and beliefs inherent in those images.

Ruth Claxton trained at Nottingham Trent University and the Royal College of Art (MA Sculpture). In 2011 her Synthetic Worlds works were exhibited at Site in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her Lands End works appeared at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, Spike Island, Bristol and Faye Fleming and Partner in Geneva from 2008-2010. Previous exhibitions include: The Collective, Edinburgh and Arquebuse Gallery, Geneva in 2006 and East International, Norwich in 2003.
