Ruth Howard is a mid-career painter and ceramicist. Often creating small-scale works on paper, Howard’s imagery is primarily inspired by domestic and wild animals and, in more recent times, an interest in landscapes, domestic objects and transportation. Through her bold and idiosyncratic style, Howard will often portray a single object on a flat plane, evoking the subject through bold yet minimal forms. Ruth Howard has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 1998, and held her first solo show at Arts Project Australia in 2015. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions including ‘Spring 1883’, The Establishment, Sydney; ‘Turning the Page’, Gallery 101, Ontario, Canada; ‘Hybrid Making – new work from Australia, Canada and Scotland’, Project Ability Gallery, Scotland; and Face-Up, Idiom Studio, Wellington, New Zealand.
