Anna Ruth is a recent graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague where she studied under the supervision of Jiří Petrboek and Martin Gerboc in the Drawing Studio.
Anna Ruth’s work bears the hallmarks of what can be described as contemporary neo-romanticism. It has long been defined by her personal mythology, which is eclectically composed of fragments of different cultures. She freely combines real historical events with myths. In her work, we can thus see a reflection of how human society evolves and how it tries to understand its own existence. The environments of the paintings and installations combine a certain timelessness with a strong emphasis on nature, balancing between figuration and abstraction. Her work is characterised by large formats, light glaze painting, earthy colours, and fluid transitions between painting and sound.
Her recent solo projects have been presented in Pragovka or in the Brno-based artist-run space Zaazrak Dornych. This year she is also participating in the SWAB fair in Barcelona and the Turkish Contemporary Istanbul.
