Artists’ Studio
Ruth Claxton

Ruth Claxton is known for her large-scale, site responsive architectural installations, which often utilise materials that are ‘activated’ by a viewer’s physical presence. She will use her residency to experiment with retro-reflective pigment, a distinctly contemporary material most commonly used in cycling jackets to illuminate the wearer in a headlamp’s beam.


Following a period of experimentation in the Artists’ Studio, Ruth will create a special installation for the Gallery’s front-facing Window Box.
